PTI reported that representatives of all NDA allies across the country will participate in the meeting during the evening, which will be followed by dinner.
This is only the second meeting of top NDA leaders since the alliance stormed to power in 2014 and could result in smoothing over any differences between the BJP and many of its small allies, some of whom have often complained about lack of communication. Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu said the NDA is performing well and the recent Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections reflect the endorsement of NDA's policies and programmes for the welfare of people.
Prime minister Narendra Modi has stressed the need to ensure that the poor people's trust in the NDA government at the Centre is not broken. Mr Jaitley said, during the last three years of NDA rule, there is no charge of corruption on the government and an honest dispensation under the leadership of Mr Modi is functioning. The meeting attended by Shiv Sena chief Udhdhav Thackeray didn't discuss the upcoming Presidential elections, however, as was widely speculated that the NDA partners would strategise and try to evolve consensus over the next presidential candidate as incumbent President Pranab Mukherjee's term expires on July 25, 2017.
With Modi's exit from the political scene of the state on becoming the Prime Minister and his formidable deputy Amit Shah's elevation as the party's national president, the BJP in the state lacks a credible mass leader to lead the campaign to reclaim Gujarat.
"The leaders from parties from different parts would not only signify our gaining strength and influence but also express BJP's willingness to work with allies", an unidentified BJP leader told The Economic Times.
Addressing party chiefs of 33 NDA constituents during the meeting, Mr Modi said all achievements of the government were possible because of the support it received from the people and allies. Uddhav will leave for Delhi around 1pm and will be accompanied by Aaditya. This will be significant for both BJP and Shiv Sena, as the parties now share a strained relationship in Maharashtra.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to pay obeisance at the 11th century Linjgaraj temple here during his two-day Odisha tour to attend the BJP national executive here.
"India is only economy which can achieve double digit growth".
The prime minister was aware that the sweeping mandate that the BJP has got, also comes with huge expectations and for meeting those the government must work with speed.
