BJP to discuss election strategy in national campaign committee meet

New Delhi, Aug. 18 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national campaign committee will meet here today to discuss the strategy for states assembly polls later in 2013 and the 2014 Lok Sabha election.

According to television reports, BJP's poll panel chief and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi will preside over the first meeting which will start at 11 am.

Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj, her Rajya Sabha counterpart Arun Jaitley, LK Advani and BJP President Rajnath Singh will also attend the one-day meet.

The BJP states unit presidents and office-bearers will also be present during the meeting.

The party is likely to get a feedback on the progress made in formation of various teams from booth-level committees and above.

On Saturday, the party had organised a media workshop for its spokespersons and media cell and asked them to target the Congress in a more aggressive manner, but maintain decency while countering the ruling party at the Centre through television debates and press interactions.

BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar, who briefed the media here after his party's national media workshop, said the party leaders, including poll panel chief Narendra Modi, are of the view that the mood of the nation is anti-Congress.

"Now, we had a session by our party's poll panel chief Narendra Modi and our party chief Rajnath Singh and they said that the mood of the people is anti-Congress and the people want change," he said.

Javadekar further said the BJP has a number of issues to corner the ruling Congress Party at the Centre.

"The BJP's biggest plus point is that we are not short of issues. The Congress has committed such a sin and looted the country, it has brought inflation......" he said. (ANI)
