“There has been no decision yet on where Narendra bhai will contest elections from. He could contest from Gujarat or elsewhere. That will be decided by the central election committee,” Mr Singh told NDTV.
Last week, when Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was asked by NDTV whether he would consider contesting the Lok Sabha elections against Mr Modi, he posed a counter-question, with a grin, “Is Narendra Modi even contesting?
Rajnath Singh asserted, “He will definitely contest.”
There has been much speculation on where Mr Modi, the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate, will choose to enter the Lok Sabha from. Gujarat, where he is Chief Minister, and has posted three emphatic wins in assembly elections over the last 12 years, would seem a natural choice.
