The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday asked its party's spokespersons and office bearers from across the states to target the Congress in a more aggressive manner, but maintain decency while countering the ruling party at the Centre through television debates and press interactions.

BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar, who briefed the media here after his party's national media workshop, said the party leaders, including poll panel chief Narendra Modi, are of the view that the mood of the nation is anti-Congress.

"Now, we had a session by our party's poll panel chief Narendra Modi and our party chief Rajnath Singh and they said that the mood of the people is anti-Congress and the people want change," he said.

Javadekar further said the BJP has a number of issues to corner the ruling Congress Party at the Centre.

"The BJP's biggest plus point is that we are not short of issues. The Congress has committed such a sin and looted the country, it has brought inflation......" he said.

The BJP, which organised a closed-door media workshop for its spokespersons, panelists and media cells at the Centre and in states, asked its leaders to exercise caution while taking on the Congress. (ANI)
