Budget Session a winner for treasury benches: PM

The NDA constituents, at the meeting, resolved to work toward its re-election in 2019 Lok Sabha Polls under the strong leadership of Mr Modi. Sources said Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu, and his Jammu and Kashmir counterpart Mehbooba Mufti will attend the meeting, as will other prominent party leaders.

The Prime Minister mentioned the BJP scoring a massive win in Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls during the session. "PM Modi has emerged as the poor's messiah", he claimed. NDA representatives lauded PM Modi's efforts in providing a corruption-free government at the Centre.

Briefing media in after the meeting, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that the popularity of NDA is growing in the country.

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 BJP will look to ensure the support of its allies in the run up to the Presidential election, which it does not want to lose as it would not only result in a loss of face but also could put in office a person who does not see eye to eye with BJP. The meeting will be presided by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray, Former Punjab Chief Minister and Akali stalwart Prakash Singh Badal, Union Minister and LJP Chief Ram Vilas Paswan were among those who attended the meeting.

Jaitley highlighted the presence of Uddhav, described the Sena as an old ally and said its participation in the meeting despite differences on certain issues was a positive sign. "Sustainability will come with stable government", he said. Besides, considering the upcoming presidential election, names of the most aspirants candidates for the post of president and vice president will also be discussed in the conference.

Underlining the government's commitment to taking India forward, it called upon the people to re-elect the ruling alliance again to power under Modi in 2019.

The NDA resolution underlined India's emergence as a leading developing economy under Modi's "extraordinary" leadership and economic experts and institutions have acknowledged it as a "great achievement".
