Thiruvananthapuram | A two-day leadership meeting of BJP will be held here from tomorrow to review the results of the May 16 Assembly elections in which the party opened its account in the state legislature.

BJP President Amit Shah would attend the state committee meeting on Thursday while a state-level office-bearers meeting will be held tomorrow, a party release said here. It is for the first time after Assembly elections that the leadership meetings are being held in the state.

A meeting of the NDA Steering Committee would also be held on June 23, the release said. The meetings would review the performance of BJP in the Assembly elections and discuss constituency-wise reports.

It would also discuss and decide the stand to be taken by the party on crucial issues such as the Athirapilly hydro electric project, Mullaperiyar Dam, a bone of contention between Kerala and Tamil Nadu, and the development of national highways.

Shah would also take part in the Shyama Prasad Mukherjee commemoration meeting to be held here on June 23, the release added. BJP fought the May 16 polls in alliance with the Bharat Dharma Jana Sena (BDJS), a political party launched by Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana (SNDP) Yogam, an outfit of backward Ezhava community.

The party scripted a history with its nominee and senior leader O Rajagopal winning the Nemom seat to help the Lotus bloom in the Assembly for the first time and also garnered 15 per cent vote share in the state, dominated by the bipolar politics of Congress-led UDF and CPI(M)-led LDF.
