Ahmedabad: Telugu actor Pawan Kalyan, Congress leader K Chiranjeevi`s brother, on Friday met Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and declared support to him for the Prime Minister`s post.
Kalyan, who recently launched Jana Sena party, however did not say anything about possibility of alliance with BJP in the residual Andhra Pradesh/Seemandhra.

Kalyan met Modi at the latter`s office in Gandhinagar.

"Modi is fit to become the Prime Minister, and I and my party support him," Kalyan said after the meeting.
"I am backing Modi, so obviously I am backing BJP," he said, when asked whether he would campaign for BJP in his state.

But he refused to spell out if his party will have a pre-poll tie up with BJP. He also evaded a question as to why he and his brother and Union Minister K Chiranjeevi had chosen different political paths.

Kalyan launched his party on March 14 with "throw out Congress" as the central plank.
