The BJP Parliamentary Board,in its meeting on July 8,had authorised Singh and Modi to jointly constitute committees to execute various aspects of the campaign. BJP sources claimed that they discussed this during their more than four hour-long meeting. Party general secretary and RSS pointsman Ramlal was learnt to have been called for the meeting.
Sources,in the context,indicated that the announcement of sub-committees for executing campaign plan may be accompanied by assigning election responsibilities for poll-bound states Chhattisgarh,Delhi,Madhya Pradesh,Mizoram and Rajasthan. Party sources indicated senior leaders like Nitin Gadkari,Venkaiah Naidu,Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley may be asked to monitor the process.
