The two-day executive committee meeting of the Maharashtra BJP began in Mumbai on Wednesday as part of its preparations for the forthcoming legislative assembly elections scheduled later this year.

BJP spokesman Madhav Bhandari told reporters in Mumbai that district unit chiefs gave details of the political situation in their respective areas and steps needed to ensure that the party wins maximum seats.

Senior union ministers Nitin Gadkari, Piyush Goyal, Prakash Javadekar will address party office bearers including taluka heads tommorrow at a day-long convention. The party is expected to firm up its election strategy at tommorrow's meeting, he said.

The BJP and Sena won 42 out of the total 48 Lok Sabha seats.

Meanwhile, addressing BJP office bearers, Maharashtra BJP chief Devendra Fadanvis said the state unit had mixed feelings after the Lok Sabha election victory.

"On one hand we are celebrating BJP's massive win in Lok Sabha elections. At the same time, we are also mourning the sudden death of our leader Gopinath Munde, who strove hard to build up BJP in the state," he said.

Fadanvis said that ensuring the defeat of Congress-NCP government during the forthcoming Maharashtra Assembly elections would be a fitting tribute to Munde.
