BJP to discuss strategy for 2014 Lok Sabha polls

New Delhi, July 4 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Parliamentary Board will meet here on Thursday to discuss the strategy for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls and the upcoming assembly elections in various states of the country.

BJP Vice-President Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, while commenting on the scheduled meeting, said there will also be discussions on the role of the various leaders in the party, and added that it would be decided as to in which manner they will participate in the campaigning for the polls.

The BJP Parliamentary Board that takes all the crucial decisions in the party will be meeting for the first time today after Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's elevation as the chairman of party's campaign committee.

BJP veteran Lal Krishna Advani, who had earlier this month quit all his three party posts after Modi was appointed as the chairman of BJP's campaign committee for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, will also be present in today's meeting that is expected to lay out the blueprint for the general elections campaign.

Advani, who had earlier said that most BJP leaders are concerned just with their personal agenda, was forced to do a U-turn after RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat stepped in and withdrew his resignation on June 11.

Assembly elections are due in several big states, including Delhi, by the end of this year. (ANI)
