The Opposition party also slammed Manmohan Singh for meeting his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif in New York at a time when Indian soldiers are being attacked at the LoC and Islamabad continues to support terrorism against India.

Jaitley said that he felt good when he heard Singh's remarks that all secular forces should unite to fight Modi. "The Prime Minister is adopting a defensive posture. He can sense the challenge from Modi. He is apprehensive," Jaitley said.

BJP claimed that the 2014 Lok Sabha elections will not be based on "arithmetic"- pre-poll analysis of which party is likely to get how many seats- but about the "changed chemistry on the ground".
