Delhi: BJP meeting expected to finalise Modi's plan for 2014 LS polls

New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party poll panel chief Narendra Modi is in Delhi on Monday for a meeting of the Parliamentary Board as the party gears for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls. In the meeting, a decision is expected on making former party president Nitin Gadkari campaign in-charge of Delhi and Rajasthan.

This is the first meeting after top brass including LK Advani met the RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat last week. The meeting is also to plan the party's official stand on the Food Security ordinance and the proposed merger with Subramaniam Swamy's Janata Party.

On Saturday, Modi had addressed BJP workers in Bihar through a teleconference link lashing out at Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for snapping ties with the BJP. He said the JD(U) leader would never be forgiven for breaking the 17-year-old alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party.

Modi's visit also comes amidst row over his close aide and UP in-charge Amit Shah raking up the Ram Temple issue.

In the first meeting, it was decided that the BJP will lay emphasis on young voters, social media will be utilised, IT professionals will be hired to make sure the party's views are sent across to a large number of Internet users, rallies and meeting should be held in all Parliamentary constituencies before the next elections.
