Shimla, Aug 19 (ANI): The BJP’s ‘Chintan Baithak’ or assessment-cum introspection exercise will begin here today.

Top BJP and RSS leaders will discuss the reasons, which led to their electoral debacle during the three-day conclave.

Latest controversies like former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje’s near rebellion and senior leader Jaswant Singh’s just- released book praising Jinnah will also be considered.

All top leaders including L K Advani, Rajnath Singh, Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley will attend the Baithak.

The ‘Chintan Baithak’ was earlier slated to take place in Mumbai.

The venue was shifted to Shimla reportedly over fears that a ‘Chintan Baithak’ in Mumbai could generate a lot of negative perception about the party.

There were many contradictions within the party over the holding of the ‘Chintan Biathak’. Party sources had said this was the main reason behind thedelay. (ANI)
