The key posts of general secretary, organisation, in BJP is held by RSS full-timers (pracharak) who are on loan to the party. Some of them occupy other posts in the party across its state units as well. RSS general secretary Bhaiyya ji Joshi, the second in command of the outfit, and its joint general secretary Krishna Gopal will be the key persons who will be present at the three day exercise, a senior BJP leader said.

Asked if Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah will also address these office bearers, he said it was not certain yet. RSS full-timers working in the BJP, especially its general secretaries in charge of the organisation in the central body as well as state bodies, spearhead party activities and are perceived to be reliable feedback as they generally, though not always, do not participate in electoral politics and owe their allegiance to the top brass of RSS.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was also a RSS 'pracharak' looking after the organisational matters in the BJP before he was chosen to lead the party in Gujarat in 2001. The meeting assumes significance as it comes in the wake of three crucial party meetings involving its state core committee leaders, chief ministers and Rajya Sabha members. Modi and Shah had addressed all three meetings.
