Another such meeting of the BJP Chief Ministers was convened on August 27. Besides Chief Ministers, Deputy Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Nirmal Kumar Singh is also expected to attend the meeting. According to party sources, the Prime Minister and Mr Shah would discuss with the Chief Ministers on various facets of “good governance” and implementation of the Centre’s pro-poor schemes as well. The BJP-led NDA coalition will complete three years in office on May 26, 2016. Notably, the meeting will see the leaders have detailed deliberations on how to carry forward the momentum post the Uttar Pradesh assembly polls victory. The BJP has already made its intent that it wants to expand party bases in states -- where it faced strong regional forces like Trinamool Congress in West Bengal and Naveen Patnaik-led BJD in Odisha. The meeting of the Chief Ministers with Prime Minister will be first after party's recently held two-day national executive meet at Bhubaneswar -- where Mr Modi gave a broad guideline to the party leaders to work under guiding theme of 'Jan Dhan' (empowerment of poor), 'Van Dhan' (Empowerment of tribal and environment protection) and 'Jal Dhan' (underline the importance of effective use of water).
