Narendra Modi meets Maha BJP leaders in Mumbai, Gadkari absent

Narendra Modi meets Maha BJP leaders in Mumbai, Gadkari absent

Mumbai: Days after being appointed the chief of BJP’s Lok Sabha polls campaign and strategy committee, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday reached Mumbai where he will unveil his agenda for the 2014 General Elections.

According to report, the Gujarat BJP leader has chosen Mumbai to begin his innings as the BJP’s poster boy for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

This will be Modi’s first visit to Mumbai after his elevation as chairman of the party’s poll panel.

The Gujarat Chief Minister will address a CII conclave at Hotel Taj Mahal and release a book at the Bombay Stock Exchange auditorium at Dalal Street.

Shortly after his arrival here, the Gujarat BJP leader also interacted with party leaders from Maharashtra. However, former BJP chief Nitin Gadkari was not present during Modi’s interaction with party leaders.

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi began his nationwide campaign from Punjab by addressing his first rally outside Gujarat, after his appointment as BJP campaign committee chief, at the Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Memorial in Pathankot on June 23.

Modi is also working on improving ties with the Shiv Sena, one of the remaining few allies in the NDA. After the JD-U’s pull-out, it has become a challenging task for the BJP to keep the alliance intact.

The recent flip-flop by the Shiv Sena over Narendra Modi has given rise to fresh apprehension. Earlier this week, the Sena leadership has criticised Modi accusing him of acting in a divisive manner by rescuing only Gujaratis from the flood-hit Uttarakhand.
