Giving an insight into BJP’s poll plank for the general elections, party’s national vice-president and in-charge of central election management Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said that internal security, inflation and incompetence of Congress-led UPA government will be the buzzwords of saffron party’s attack on the Congress. Though the party has identified several issues, the thrust will be on rising prices of essential commodities.
“Congress claims to champion the cause of the common man. And it is the same common man who is suffering because of this government’s policies,” party leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said.
The BJP will also focus on the leadership of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh while trying to project L K Advani as an “efficient, experienced and nationalist” leader.
The idea is to paint Singh as an “incompetent” Prime Minister, whose government has surrendered before the threat of terrorism.
While deciding the BJP nominees for the elections, the formula would be “party, principle and personality,” Naqvi told said.
The party will give tickets to those who can strengthen the party at the booth level, propagate the party’s policies and principles among the masses and those who have winning chances, Naqvi said.
