The first national executive meeting of the BJP after Rajnath Singh took over as party President would be held in New Delhi on May 29-30.

The meeting, which was initially scheduled to be held in Guwahati in March, was postponed to May 25 and the venue was shifted to Ludhiana.

Subsequently, in the wake of party General Secretary Pramod Mahajan's death, the dates were deferred to May 27-28 and the venue shifted to Delhi.

The meeting would now be held on May 29-30 at the Parliament Annexe in New Delhi, BJP headquarters incharge Shyam Jaju said.

He said the two-day meeting would be preceded by a meeting of party General Secretaries and Organisation Secretaries from across the country on May 28.

Conveners and Co-Conveners of all party cells would meet on May 27 while all state presidents, state organisation secretaries and incharges would meet after the national executive on May 31.

Also, over 100 members of the national executive, Chief Ministers of BJP-ruled states, state unit Presidents and Organisation Secretaries and Zonal Incharges would be attending the two-day executive meeting, Jaju said.

Besides Mahajan's death, the meeting is expected to discuss the country's political and economic situation, the recent Assembly elections in five states and other organisational matters.
