"As far as the Bharatiya Janata Party is concerned, Atal Bihari Vajpayeeji was their Prime Ministerial candidate in 2004 and the BJP lost. Advaniji was their Prime Ministerial candidate in 2009 and again the BJP lost. And now, 2014 is far off and for BJP Delhi is even farther," he told the media here.
The infighting within the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) has gained momentum after senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha openly pitched for declaring Modi as the BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate, saying it will benefit the party in a big way.
Sinha yesterday said there is a strong demand from the common people and workers that Narendra Modi should be declared as the Prime Ministerial candidate.
"Wherever I go, the party workers and common people demand that Modi should be BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate, and now I too think that it will benefit the party a lot. But, it is up to the party leadership to decide on the issue," he said.
Disapproving Sinha's bid to project Narendra Modi as the BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate, Janata Dal-United (JD-U) chief Sharad Yadav yesterday said that alliances are formed with 'great difficulty'.
"Alliances are formed with great difficulty and BJP leader Yashwant Sinha's statement is uncalled for in the context of alliances," said Yadav, who is also convenor of the BJP-led NDA.
Sinha's comments for projecting Modi as the Prime Ministerial candidate came a day after the Gujarat Chief Minister held a two-hour long discussion with BJP President Rajnath Singh.
Modi met the new BJP President earlier on Sunday and the duo discussed the future course of action regarding the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
