The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Parliamentary Board, which met here on Thursday, finalised its plan for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls and decided to create about 15 committees to manage different aspects of the election campaign under Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's leadership.

The meeting, which was chaired by BJP President Rajnath Singh, was attended by party veteran Lal Krishna Advani, Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj and Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley.

Senior BJP leader M. Venkaiah Naidu was also present in the meeting along with Modi, who has been appointed as the party's campaign committee chief for the 2014 polls.

The BJP Parliamentary Board also discussed the strategy for the upcoming Monsoon Session of Parliament beginning on August 5.

The BJP is likely to target the Congress-led UPA Government at the Centre over the Food Security Ordinance and the condition of the Indian economy during the Monsoon Session of Parliament. (ANI)
