BJP is communal, never praised Modi as secular: Hazare

July 19, 2013 21:39 IST

Narendra Modi's stamp was written all over as the Bharatiya Janata Party announced its election campaign committee for 2014 polls on Friday including top leaders Murli Manohar Joshi, Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley who will work under him.

The 12-member committee to which Modi was appointed as chairperson in Goa last month will also have other senior leaders including M Venkaiah Naidu, Nitin Gadkari, besides Chief Ministers Shivraj Singh Chouhan (Madhya Pradesh), Raman Singh (Chhattisgarh) and Manohar Parrikar (Goa).

This committee will be assisted by 20 sub-committees, which will concentrate on various aspects of electioneering including rallies, publicity, manifesto, reaching out to the youth through social media, courting first time voters, "crowd sourcing", and preparing a vision document of its programmes and a "charge-sheet" against the United Progressive Alliance rule.

"All the sub-committees will be steered under the leadership of Narendra Modi... The party has given Modi the responsibility of 2014 elections... Under his leadership the whole campaign will move forward," BJP General Secretary Ananth Kumar said.

The election campaign committee and the sub-committees will work under the overall "guidance" of Atal Bihari Vajpayee, L K Advani and party President Rajnath Singh, he added.

Gadkari has been asked to pay "special attention" to Delhi in the forthcoming assembly elections.
