 Rattled by Congress president Rahul Gandhi's frontal attack and then an unusual gesture of hugging Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP proposes to go back to the drawing back and revise its strategy for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

Apart from ramping up its reach-out drive to the voters up to booth level and giving a much-needed boost to a slew of development and welfare programmes, BJP may plan more people-centric projects like the recent decision to hike minimum support price for paddy and kharif crops, also to effectively counter anti-incumbency.

The trigger is also Gandhi holding BJP and RSS for engineering divisive politics and projecting Congress as a party which encompasses people from all caste and creed. He also countered BJP's attack that Congress is a Muslim party.

 Further, BJP proposes to bring in parties like AIADMK, and leaders like Rajinikanth for a pre-poll alliance to take on Opposition, especially when Shiv Sena has decided to go solo and TDP walked out of NDA.

BJP may have to pull up the socks, especially when Congress has indicated that it was ready to be at the forefront to forge an anti-BJP alliance at the national level.

A three-time BJP MP told DNA, "Congress president targeted Modi and painted him bhagidar and now chowkidar. PM is capable to counter these baseless charges but BJP cannot afford to keep a low profile if Congress and other opposition parties plan to step up attack against Modi government in the run up to Lok Sabha polls. Since Gandhi has revived his suit boot ki sarkar jibe, the party will have to make further efforts to convince voters that it was not favouring select businesses but was committed to improve standard of living of have-nots. This apart, BJP is committed to curb corruption and cannot spare scamsters.''

He, however, admitted that BJP-led governments at the Centre and in 20 states will now have to improve coordination and thereby give development projects a push.
