BJP Party President Nitin Gadkari, in his inaugural address, asked his party workers to be prepared for mid-term polls and compared the current UPA government to a sinking ship. The nation is one the verge of change and the elections can be held at any time, he said. The BJP leaders agreed that they would not be there to save the government if it falls on its own.

Opposition on FDI

The party has decided to scrap FDI in retail if voted to power. BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said, "51% FDI in retail is not in the interest of the country or our own farming community." He made it clear that the party is not against reforms, but is in favor of pro-people reforms.

BJP National Council Meeting

The National Council Meeting would be held on September 27 and 28. More than 1200 delegates will participate in the National Council meeting.

During the 3-day meet, BJP president Nitin Gadkari was given another term.

Delivering the valedictory address of the two-day national council meeting, veteran BJP leader LK Advani called on his party workers to be over board on corruption. "When we criticise the Congress on corruption and there is even a whiff of corruption in our party there is so much noise. We should expect the same firm treatment to our own people," he said.
