BJP on Monday said it has come into election mode and is ready for snap polls for which it has laid down a roadmap making good governance and development as its poll planks.


The opposition party said it will form several committees in the next few days to highlight the failure of the Congress-led UPA government on various issues like corruption, price rise and on the economic front.

Attacking the ruling dispensation, it said the UPA is cracking and the Congress is under pressure from its allies even as it accused it of not being in a position to face the nation or Parliament resulting in the delay of the Monsoon session.

"BJP has come in election mode. We are ready for snap polls," party general secretary Ananth Kumar said.

He was speaking after the meeting of the BJP Parliamentary Board, the party's highest decision-making body, where, Kumar said, the current political situation in the country was discussed and a roadmap and strategy for the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls decided.

This is the second meeting of the BJP Parliamentary Board within a week, which was attended by the BJP top leadership including L K Advani, party president Rajnath Singh and the party's Campaign Committee chief Narendra Modi, besides other leaders. Its last meeting was held on July 4.

He said the BJP will adopt a two-pronged strategy for the polls which will include a political campaign with the party holding rallies and meetings across the country and an organisational strategy to put the party's structure in place and take its campaign forward.

"The Congress party does not want to face Parliament because of its failure on corruption, price rise, economic crisis and other fronts," he alleged.

He claimed that the UPA is "breaking from inside" and the Congress party is "under pressure" from its allies, which posed a question mark on the convening of the Monsoon Session of Parliament in July.

"Congress can also hold early elections due to pressure from allies," he said.
