Shah reportedly rapped some of the BJP leaders, saying their passion had gone missing and asked them to remain close to the ground reality. It was decided that the BJP would pose five questions everyday to Kejriwal till February 6. The party will ask 120 of its MPs to campaign for the Delhi polls and hold 250 rallies over the next seven days.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will also address four rallies in the national capital beginning January 31. The party will also deploy 1.25 lakh workers ahead of the election which has become a prestige battle with the AAP.

The BJP has decided not to release any poll manifesto ahead of the Delhi election since a number of its leaders failed to reach a consensus and instead PM Modi and the party's chief ministerial candidate, Kiran Bedi, will release a vision document ahead of the election.

The results of the election will be declared on February 10.
