Lucknow, July 5: BJP President J. P. Nadda will pay his first visit to the state capital after the Lok Sabha elections to attend the organisation’s state executive meeting on July 14. The party’s below-average performance in UP was one of the reasons behind the BJP failing to reach the 272 mark in the Lok Sabha on its own. All district presidents will attend the day-long meeting along with other office bearers of the party at Indira Gandhi Pratishthan.

“Apart from routine things, much will be discussed at the closed-door meeting between the national president and senior office bearers of the state,” said a senior BJP leader. “The party’s performance in this Lok Sabha poll in the state and reasons for the poor show will be discussed at the closed-door meeting with the national president of the party,” he added. 'Take Control of BJP Office': PM Narendra Modi Makes Appeal to Muslim Community, Urges Them to Get Rid of 'Fear Politics' (Watch Video).
