"A sharp strategy for the 2014
polls would be the main focus of the meet," BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi
said ahead of the meet.

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, who
was last month anointed as the chief of BJP's poll campaign committee, is
likely to decide his team for the polls.

Modi, who arrived in the
national capital for the meeting Thursday morning, will also hold
discussions with the general secretaries of the party.

The meet
comes a day after the Central Bureau of Investigation filed its first
charge sheet on the encounter in which Ishrat Jahan and three others were
killed by Gujarat Police nine years ago.

Though Modi or any of
his key ministers were not named in the charge sheet, the Gujarat
government has been blamed for backing the encounter.

BJP today hit back at Congress leader Shakeel Ahmad for indirectly calling
Modi, Mogambo, and said that the countrymen will make the current
government realise as to who is 'Rambo and Mogambo'.

Ahmad had
said that, "Some leaders of BJP are trying to project one of its leaders
as Rambo, who can climb mountains, swim seas and save lives of 15,000
people. I have tried to say the one who tries to be ‘Rambo’ in real
life ends up being a ‘Mogambo’.

“Some members of the
Congress everyday after getting up in the morning do a Modi jaap (chant).
They regularly talk ill of him. In the coming days, people of this country
will let them know clearly as to who is ‘Rambo and Mogambo’,” 
Naqvi said.
