BJP chief Nitin Gadkari is expected to lay focus on 'Antyodaya' in the party's forthcoming national council meeting at Indore.
'Antyodaya', meaning 'serving the last man in the queue', is a concept developed by party ideologue Deen Dayal Upadhyaya and aims at reaching out to the most marginalised sections of the society, the party says.
In the first meet after 52-year-old Gadkari took over the reins of the party, the main opposition is expected to try to drive home the point that Congress' concern for 'aam admi' is just hollow as price rise is pinching the common man.
While a resolution on the political situation will underline a roadmap for BJP, the meet is held at a time when cracks have developed in the party-led NDA with Shiv Sena's campaign against "Mumbai for all" not going down well with the party as also the Sangh Parivar.
The national council will pass resolutions on price rise, internal security situation and the overall political situation in the country.
"There will be a resolution on price rise and another one on the internal security situation in the country. A comprehensive political resolution on the current state of affairs in the country will also be passed," Gadkari's political advisor-designate Vinay Sahasrabuddhe told PTI.
Incidentally, this is the first party meet after Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley were made leaders of the opposition in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha respectively.
