Modi, they said,has emerged the strongest contender for the top job mainly because of the TINA (there is no alternative) factor.
Sources said,On Hindutva,the RSS advise was to avoid taking up cudgels and indirect attack on self-styled secularists like Congress.
RSS is believed to have conveyed to Modi that Congress must be projected as a divide-and-rule party that practices communalism for votes.
Targeting the youth was also stressed as a key strategy for 2014.
RSS,however,is believed to have expressed reservations about an Andhra Pradesh BJP move to collect Rs 5 from those desirous of attending the forthcoming Modi rally. It was advised to avoid such overzealous moves.
Earlier,Modi arrived at Babasaheb Ambedkar International Airport in the evening from Orissa to a rousing reception. Former BJP president Nitin Gadkari had arrived by a different flight a little before but waited for Modi and came out of the airport with him.
He,however,did not participate in the discussion at the RSS headquarters.
He was asked to join but he refused,saying he would meet the RSS leaders later, the sources said.
