Shimla: The ruling BJP in the state on Wednesday convened a state executive committee meeting at Peterhoff to discuss the outcome of the bye-election and the party’s unexpected defeat in all the four bye polls held on October 30 for Mandi Parliamentary, Fatehpur, Arki and Jubbal Kotkhai Assembly.
Party state in-charge Avinash Khanna interacted with media persons just before the brainstorming session of the state executive here on Wednesday.
He said that the party is determined to win the upcoming Shimla Municipal Corporation Election and Vidhan Sabha general election in 2022 therefore this meeting is very important for the ruling party.
Mr Khanna said that party leaders would discuss the reasons for the party’s loss in the recent by-election and after learning from its mistakes the party would emerge victorious again in the upcoming polls.
He said that the party executive committee meets every three months, however, this meeting is very crucial for the ruling party as after facing defeat in the bye-election its leaders would sit together to find out the reasons and causes of the losses in the by-election.
Responding to the resignation of party vice president Kripal Parmar on Tuesday he said that it is not so important as he has decided to quit his post and not the party.
“Party posts are not permanent but workers should keep working for the party which is important for the party,” Khanna said.
He said that their concerted efforts and focus would be on making policy, program and party activities in favour of the common people to ensure that the party regains the lost faith in the upcoming elections.
Among those attending state, executive meetings is Chief minister Jai Ram Thakur, Urban development Minister Suresh Bhardwaj, Party President Suresh Kashyap and Former president Rajiv Bindal, District Shimla President Ravi Mehta.
Former Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal and Shanta Kumar were also invited to the meeting.
