Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah met chief ministers and deputy chief ministers of all party ruled states on Monday to take stock of development and social welfare work being done.
Besides 13 chief ministers and six deputy chief ministers, a few cabinet ministers were expected to have attended the meeting, according to sources in the party.

The discussions in the meeting were expected to revolve around implementation of the Centre's flagship schemes in the states and development works being done there, they said.
The meeting is being organised just days after Shah unfolded the blue print for 2019 elections, which may also feature in the discussions.
Shah had asked party leaders to focus on about 120 winnable seats which party lost in 2014 elections and is aiming for more than 350 in the next general elections.
The chief ministers are likely to give presentations of schemes and models undertaken by their respective governments at the meet.
