The meeting was called to discuss the poll strategy for the upcoming state assembly elections and 2014 Lok Sabha polls. The meeting which started at 11am was chaired by Gujarat Chief Minister.

Senior leaders like party president Rajnath Singh, party’s parliamentary board president LK Advani Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj and Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley were also present at the meeting.

On Saturday, the party had organized 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.

Party spokesperson Prakash Javadekar, who briefed the media after party's national media workshop, said party leaders, including 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 that the BJP has a number of issues to corner the Congress-led ruling establishment 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.
