PM Modi Will Be BJP's Face For Gujarat Assembly Elections Later This Year

At the dinner table on Monday evening, the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) members chose its next Prime Ministerial candidate for the Lok Sabha elections 2019.

Its allies from Bihar, including Union Ministers Ram Vilas Paswan and Upendra Kushwaha besides Jitan Ram Manjhi, Union Minister Anupriya Patel and Om Rajbhar from Uttar Pradesh, besides a host of allies from Kerala, Tamil Nadu and other states are expected to attend the meeting.

The party can not afford a poor show in state elections as Modi gained popularity in the country on the "Gujarat model of development", following which the voters in the country elevated him to the chair of Prime Minister in 2014.

The two parties fought the 2014 Assembly elections and the recent BMC polls separately.

The BJP today lined up its 32 NDA partners to endorse the "bold and decisive" leadership of Narendra Modi, the pro-poor policies of his government and his rising popularity across the country, seeking to counter Opposition attempts to unite against the saffron surge.

The meeting began with the inaugural address by BJP President Amit Shah. Uddhav's son and Yuva Sena chief Aaditya accompanied him for the meeting. This will be significant for both BJP and Shiv Sena, as the parties now share a strained relationship in Maharashtra.

A resolution passed at the meeting said, "In the extraordinary leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, India has succeeded in establishing its identity in the world as a fast growing economy". Even China can't. This is possible only under Modi's leadership. Sena sources said that the party will use their support as a bargaining chip to press for more ministerial berths in both the Centre and State governments.

The Telugu Desam Party boss said the continuance of the Modi government was needed beyond 2019 to put the country on the path of double-digit growth after years under the Congress-led UPA government when the country "got a bad image" because of "corruption".
