The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) three-day National Council meet beginning on Friday in Kozhikode is likely to chalk out an aggressive strategy to counter Pakistan&’s anti-India activities in the sub-continent while isolating it further on the international platform, sources in the party have said.

According to sources, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who will be arriving in the coastal town of Kerala on Saturday has taken note of the growing resentment among people in the wake of the Uri terror attack, and therefore is likely to give out a stern warning to Pakistan.

The news comes in the backdrop of India hinting at reviewing the Indus water treaty with Pakistan as well as the status of Most Favoured Nation (MFN) awarded to the neighbouring country.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh is likely to move the resolution on internal security on situations arising out of the Uri terror attack, besides addressing the issue of ongoing unrest in Jammu and Kashmir.

In addition, the council is likely to adopt political and economic resolutions as well as programmes and policies that are likely to be pursued ahead of the elections in five states in 2017.

The meeting of the BJP from Friday will also set the political agenda of the party with key elections coming up next year, besides discussing the achievements of the Modi government.
