Thrissur, June 24:
Having failed so far to make an electoral breakthrough in Kerala, the BJP would seriously think about working out new strategies and programmes to attract more people to the party, including those from the minority communities, according to BJP state unit spokesman B K Shekhar.
Asked about the appearance of wall posters in the town, demanding the ouster of party state president P S Sreedharan Pillai and Former Union Minister O Rajagopal from the leadership, he said that was the handiwork of the party's opponents.
Briefing reporters on the party's two-day state leadership convention that began here today, Shekhar said it was 'inevitable for the party to change its policy in Kerala' to win elections. However he declined to elaborate on what exact lines the party was going to move in the coming days.
Since politics in Kerala was dominated by two strong coalitions–LDF and UDF–it would not be 'wise to contest the elections alone, 'he said.
As minority communities constituted 48 percent of the state's population, the party would also make efforts to attract them, he said.
The organisational elections in the state from booth to state level committees would be held from July to October. BJP national General Secretary Sanjay Joshi was present at today's meeting.
