Amid continued stalemate over government formation in the city, BJP on Tuesday said it was "battle ready" for another round of assembly polls.

A meeting of Delhi BJP's Election Core Group reviewed the current situation and discussed the future strategy.

BJP's Delhi Election in-charge Nitin Gadkari told the meeting that party cadres need to work harder now to fulfil aspirations of the Delhiites.

"If elections are held again, BJP will emerge much stronger with a clear majority," Gadkari said.

Delhi BJP President Vijay Goel attacked Aam Admi Party for not coming forward to form a government despite Congress extending support to it. "The BJP did not have the required numbers so we could not form the government. But Congress had given unconditional support to AAP and hence the party had numbers but it still did not form the government," Goel said in a statement. He said the party has decided to go back to the people through a three pronged strategy- door to door campaign, public meetings and social media campaign.

"The BJP cadres would communicate to the people how AAP's non-serious approach is forcing another election upon Delhiites and how BJP has been fighting against misrule of Congress for the last 15 years," said Goel. He said party cadres and leaders will organise 'victory rallies' in the assembly constituencies which the party has won while there will be 'thanks giving' rallies where the party lost. Goel said BJP will put special focus on youth and women.

"In addition to these measures, a three-member working group is being set up which will visit various assembly segments and assess the performance of various BJP legislators," he said.
