Senior Ministers, Nadda discuss BJP strategy for Monsoon session
Senior Union Ministers and BJP chief J.P. Nadda met on Tuesday to discuss the party's strategy for the upcoming Monsoon session of Parliament starting from July 19.
A party insider said that the meeting was held at Defence Minister Rajnath Singh's residence and lasted for around three hours.
Union Ministers Amit Shah, Dharmendra Pradhan, Pralhad Joshi, Bhupender Yadav, Arjun Ram Meghwal and others were present in the meeting along with party chief Nadda.
"Strategy for the upcoming monsoon session was discussed. Strategy for countering opposition attacks on issues like Covid management, inflation and others were discussed in detail," the party insider said.
The government is expecting a stormy session in which opposition parties are likely to corner it on Covid management during the second wave, and fuel prices.
"It was decided that we will counter the opposition attack by highlighting government efforts to contain the second wave and plans for managing the third wave, and measures for people and measures taken to boost the economy," a source said.
The BJP has to also appoint a new Leader of House in the Rajya Sabha after Union Minister Thawarchand Gehlot was made Governor of Karnataka. Names of senior party leaders and some Union Ministers are already doing rounds for the possible replacement.
This will be the first parliament session after Assembly polls in West Bengal, Assam, Tamil Nadu, Keral and Puducherry.
