3-day BJP-RSS meet to streamline coordination in UP to begin today
In the third meeting since the ruling Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) since Yogi Adityanath assumed office in Uttar Pradesh, senior office bearers of both the outfits will today try to streamline the coordination between the government and the RSS.
The three-day meeting will begin here today.
"This is the third such co-ordination meeting in past three months between the BJP and RSS. These meetings are held to discuss and resolve various issues," a senior UP BJP leader told PTI.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, deputy chief ministers Dinesh Sharma and Keshav Prasad Maurya, who is also the UP BJP chief, along with Sunil Bansal are likely to participate, a senior leader said.
"From the RSS side, senior functionaries Dattaterya Hosabale, Krishna Gopal (who co-ordinates with BJP) and two area pracharaks Alok and Shiv Narayan are likely to take part," an RSS office bearer said.
Last week, Laghu Udyog Bharati, the RSS affiliate associated with small scale industries had expressed reservations about the new industrial policy being launched in the state.
Laghu Udyog Bharati, a confederation of several MSME units across the country, had said that there was no encouragement for the industries which have either closed down or are on the verge of closure in the policy.
"Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on June 9 approved the draft of new the industrial policy. The policy seems to be quite promising for the new industries, but there is no encouragement for industries that have either closed down or are on the verge of closure," General Secretary of Laghu Udyog Bharti (UP unit) Ravindra Singh had said.
"We welcome the policy, but request the BJP government to reconsider some points in the draft of the policy," he had said.
Earlier, on April 24, Adityanath held a co-ordination committee meeting with office bearers of RSS and the BJP.
Inclusion of RSS and BJP office bearers on posts of chairman of various corporations and commissions, Bundelkhand Vikas Board and Purvanchal Vikas Board came up during the meeting, which also deliberated on organisational revamping of UP unit of the BJP.
