The meeting with deal with better synergy, and with contentious issues - like the roles right-wing organisations will play from here on.
Another crucial topic of discussion will be the law-and-order situation in UP.
It didn't go down well either with the party or the Sangh, that at a time when a new DGP has just taken over, an incident like that took place in in Agra yesterday occurred.
Close on the heels of Saharanpur, where Hindu outfit members attacked Saharanpur SSP's residence, led by a BJP MP, a large mob on Sunday attacked Agra's Fatehpur Sikri and Sadar police stations, beating up a Deputy SP, a station house officer and looted away a sub inspector's pistol. Several vehicles were damaged and a motorcycle set on fire before the mob could be brought under control.
The mob, led by Fatehpur Sikri MLA Ch. Udaybhan Singh, had been staging a sit-in at the Fatehpur Sikri police station demanding the release of some Hindu outfit members who had been arrested for assaulting a couple of Muslim grocers Muvin and Rizwan in Fatehpur Sikri. The grocers had filed an FIR against the accused and six of them had been arrested and were sent to be kept in the lockup at the Sadar police station.
