Seraikela, Sep 14: BJP leaders of the state are happy with the anointment of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as the party’s Prime Ministerial candidate in next year’s Lok Sabha elections.
Ganesh Mahali General Secretary of BJP Seraikela District told that the rank and file of the state unit was happy with the decision and it would have a positive impact on the party’s prospects in Jharkhand.
Mahali said Modi was now acceptable to everyone, particularly the youth. In November last year, Delhi leaders had convened a meeting of BJP chief ministers to elicit their opinion on projecting Modi as the party’s PM candidate. A pro-Modi wave in Jharkhand will definitely help the BJP win maximum number of seats, he added.
Mahali thanked BJP national president Rajnath Singh for anointing Modi as PM’s candidate. “The party workers will now work with more vigour to install a NDA government,” he said.
