The meeting, chaired by BJP's national president Jagat Prakash Nadda, will be the first meeting after the COVID-19 induced lockdown where all senior office bearers of the party would be physically present.
In a directive issued by party general secretary Arun Singh, on behalf of the BJP president, has asked state party Chiefs and in-charges, co-in charges, and general secretaries (organisation) to come prepared to apprise the meeting regarding the prevailing situation in their respective states.
