BJP leaders to discuss 2014 poll strategy

New Delhi, July 4 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) parliamentary board, which meets here later Thursday, is expected to discuss the party's strategy and core team for the 2014 general elections, a senior BJP leader said.

"A sharp strategy for the 2014 polls would be the main focus of the meet," BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said ahead of the meet.

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, who was last month anointed as the chief of BJP's poll campaign committee, is likely to decide his team for the polls.

Modi, who arrived in the national capital for the meeting Thursday morning, will also hold discussions with the general secretaries of the party.

The meet comes a day after the Central Bureau of Investigation filed its first charge sheet on the encounter in which Ishrat Jahan and three others were killed by Gujarat Police nine years ago.

Though Modi or any of his key ministers were not named in the charge sheet, the Gujarat government has been blamed for backing the encounter.
