Gujarat Chief Minister, BJP’s choice for Prime Minister post, Narendra Modi will contest Lok Sabha elections, declared party chief Rajnath Singh, but from where, is the question he chose not to answer. There were speculations that Modi might choose a place from UP, as his confidante, Amit Shah was posted to take care of the affairs there in UP already. The natural choice of Gujarat for Modi, will be looked at as weakness from opposing parties, particularly under speculation that Kejriwal might choose to contest against Modi, as Kejriwal had indicated obliquely earlier. As Rahul and Sonia Gandhi will also be contesting from UP, projecting Modi as a true opponent validates that he contest from UP. But if Kejriwal chooses to oppose Modi, instead of Rahul, it will be uncomfortable, to say the least to the BJP main face.
When Kejriwal was asked a question on the subject, he said with a big grin “Is Modi even contesting?”, in a taunting tone.
