"People of this country have already decided what this elections are all about and we will not allow anybody to divert the agenda specially the Congress which has failed on the promises made and today is seeking to divert the agenda for its own benefit," said BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi.

BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi also disapproved of "petty" statements by those claiming to be his party’s well-wishers, saying they are deviating the campaign.

"Petty statements by those claiming to be BJP's well- wishers are deviating the campaign from the issues of development and good governance," he said in his tweets after the controversial statements made by VHP leader Pravin Togadia and Bihar BJP leader Giriraj Singh.

Lekhi said, "The top most leadership of BJP has clarified repeatedly and we are making a further clarification that BJP will focus on the agenda of good governance and development."

Attacking the Congress, the BJP spokesperson said the ruling party was trying to divert the voters' attention from the real issues as part of its strategy.

“People who have been in government for the last 10 years have failed to deliver on promises of development and progress and thus as its strategy they have chosen to diversify the agenda of development and progress into sometime communal, sometime rioting and various other issues,” she said.
