The prevailing state of the country' economic and agricultural health will feature high on the agenda of the Bharatiya Janata Party's two-day National Executive Meet scheduled here from May 24.

Four major resolutions, including one on the country's teetering economy and the agrarian situation, especially with regard to droughts in Maharashtra and Karnataka, are to be passed during the course of the meet, BJP national spokesperson Syed Shahanawaz Hussain told journalists here.

Launching a broadside against the Manmohan-Singh-led UPA government, Mr. Hussain said it had failed miserably in providing credible leadership to the country at a critical juncture when a string of scams were exploding in its face.

The Aviation industry too was suffering as a result of the Central government's faulty policies, said Mr. Hussain, himself a former Civil Aviation Minister.

However, Mr. Hussain stonewalled questions on the meet itself, cryptically stating that the Opposition Congress would not be given a chance to critique the meet.

He played down suggestions of a change in the BJP's constitution with regard to the reinstatement of national president Nitin Gadkari for a second term.

As per rules, the national executive, which comprises 500 members, will amend party rules, which stipulate that the tenure should not be more than three years, thereby formalising Mr. Gadkari's reinstatement.
