The NDA meeting on Monday was an attempt to reaffirm the alliance's unity in the aftermath of the heat and dust of the assembly polls and local body elections in some states.

"Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan made the proposal for fighting Lok Sabha election under Modi and it was accepted unanimously", the BJP leader added. 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.

"To continue with the development and poor welfare programs, NDA urges the citizens of the country to be determined to give huge majority to NDA under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2019", the resolution said. NDA representatives lauded PM Modi's efforts in providing a corruption-free government at the Centre.

Jaitley further said that there was no discussion over who will be the next president of India.

With presidential election round the corner, the BJP is hopeful of securing the support of the Shiv Sena's contingent of 18 MPs and 63 MLAs after the Shah-Thackeray meeting.

Leaders of 31 Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) allies, including the new friends it has won over in Goa and north-east states, will attend the meeting after its president Amit Shah reached out to them.

Thackeray also praised the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh for farm loan waiver but insisted that the BJP dispensation in Maharashtra follow suit given the agrarian tragedy and hardship in the state.

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.

Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thakrey and Akali Dal's Prakash Singh Badal represented their parties. 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.

Speaking on relationship with Shiv Sena, Jaitley said, "Shiv Sena is the oldest BJP ally".

"Take inspiration from Hanuman, He never took anything from anyone but he kept giving". All knowledgeable and large institutions of economic affairs have been accepting India's rapidly growing economy as a great achievement.
