Gujarat BJP to hold parliamentary board meeting on Aug 17-18


The Gujarat BJP’s parliamentary board meeting is going to be held on August 17 and 18 at its headquarters ‘Kamalam’. The meeting will be headed by the Gujarat BJP chief CR Patil.

It will be also attended by Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel and Union minister Parshottam Rupala.

Discussion on civic bodies and Assembly bypolls

Notably, the tenure of various office bearers in various civic bodies is coming to an end. During the two-day-long meeting, discussions are likely to happen on finalising the names for various positions in the BJP-ruled civil bodies.

This apart, the party is also likely to discuss the bypolls that are likely to take place in the state.

Notably, the bypolls are going to happen as Congress MLAs defected to BJP and tendered their resignations, which was accepted by the Speaker. The development took place in the run-up to the Rajya Sabha polls, which has been already completed.

CR Patil’s Saurashtra tour

After the meeting, Gujarat BJP president CR Patil will start his visit to the Saurashtra region. It will be his first visit after becoming the chief of Gujarat BJP.
