Jaipur, Sep 28 (UNI) With mid-term polls appearing a distinct possibility, the BJP today said it would project price hike, weak internal security, UPA government's alleged non-governance and appeasement policy as its poll plank.

Talking to reporters here, party president Rajnath Singh said his party was foreseeing possibility of snap polls and was preparing to target the UPA Government over the above issues.

On whether the Ramsethu would be made a poll blank, Mr Singh said Ramsethu and Ayodhya were more than poll issue for his party and the matter would be raised during the elections.

''Ramsethu and Ayodhya's Ram Temple are national issues for the BJP and our party cannot oversee these issues.'' Earlier, speaking at the national convention of Bharatiya Janta Yuva Morcha, Mr Singh castigated the UPA Government for its ''incapability'' in providing good governance.

He said prices of essential commodities were skyrocketing, corruption had been showing a rising trend and the government was ''incapable'' of doing any good to the people.

The party president said though terroristic activities were rising and threat to internal security was looming large, the government was soft peddling these vital issues.

Mr Singh said the Congress' appeasement politics had taken an ''ugly'' dimension and the Sachar committee report and its implementation had posed threat to social harmony and cohesion among various communities.

He reiterated that the BJP would strongly oppose any move for reservation to Muslims as it was against the idea of religion-based reservation.

He also condemned the UPA government for delaying Parliament attack case convict Afzal Guru's execution and said if the BJP came to power at the Centre, it would ensure early execution of Afzal.

BJP Treasurer Ramdas Agrawal, Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, BJP state President Mahesh Sharma and several other leaders also spoke on the occasion.

BJP vice president Bal Apte, Jharkhand former Chief Minister Arjun Munda and several prominent party leaders were also present.
