In a press statement on Saturday, it has been informed that the meeting of the BJP central election committee was held on February 29 last under the chairmanship of Jagat Prakash Nadda. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, Home Minister Amit Shah and other members of the central election committee were present in the meeting.
