BJP parliamentary board meets to strategise on Lok Sabha polls

New Delhi: The BJP parliamentary board met in the national capital on Friday to finalise the party's strategy for the Lok Sabha polls with its top leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi and president Amit Shah, brainstorming for close to three hours.

There was no official statement on what transpired in the meeting.

There has been speculation that the party is considering introducing certain criteria, including age bar, for candidates, but there has been no official word on this.

A party leader said "winability" will be the key consideration in selecting candidates.
