Modi to contest LS poll from one seat in Guj: BJP

Gujarat BJP on Thursday announced that chief minister Narendra Modi will contest elections from one seat in the state, without ruling out the possibility that he may fight on a second seat from Uttar Pradesh.

‘I can definitely say that Modiji will fight elections from one seat in Gujarat,’ state BJP general secretary Vijay Rupani told reporters here.

‘There has been a clamour to invite Narendra Modi to fight elections from four main cities of the state – Ahmedabad, Rajkot, Vadodara and Surat. Our party workers wish that he should contest from Gujarat,’ Rupani said.

‘Our (state BJP) parliamentary board had met over the last four days in which it was finalised that Modi would contest from one seat in Gujarat,’ he said, adding that the decision on which seat he will contest is yet to be taken.

When asked if Modi will also contest from Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh, the BJP leader said, ‘I do not know anything about that seat, but it will be decided by our central parliamentary board.’
There has been lot of confusion on from which seat Modi will enter the poll fray.
