The back to back government initiatives of demonetisation and implementation of the Goods and Services Tax may theoretically be good for the nation in the long term, but in the short term, the combination resulted in a slowing down of the economy and a discernible decrease in GDP, a fact proved by numbers which has led to heavy criticism of the government.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to break his silence on the issue of the economy slow-down when he addresses a BJP national executive meet on Monday along with BJP national president Amit Shah. The 'extended executive' meeting is being attended by nearly 1,400 MLAs, 337 MPs, all MLCs and group leaders from states.

The valedictory address by PM Modi would take place at the end of the day-long meet while Amit Shah would present the inaugural address. During the PM's address, he is expected to discuss the falling GDP and economy slowdown, and highlight the successes in boosting transparency and curbing black money, party sources said. PM Modi would also lay down his government's economic and political agenda.

According to BJP sources, the party's resolution will likely assert that the economy is doing better under the NDA government as compared to the previous UPA government. The issue of Rohingya immigrants may also be discussed.

Marking the end of a year-long celebration of RSS ideologue Deen Dayal Upadhyaya the executive would likely cite the measures undertaken by the centre and BJP-ruled states for the welfare and upliftment of the poor.
