Mumbai: NDA`s key ally Shiv Sena on Sunday welcomed the appointment of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as chairman of BJP`s Election Campaign Committee for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
"We welcome the appointment of Narendra Modi as head of BJP`s election campaign committee. We have expressed our good wishes to Modi," Shiv Sena spokesperson Sanjay Raut said.
He said party president Uddhav Thackeray, who is abroad, called up Modi and congratulated him.
"Modi is an efficient leader and popular among masses. Appointing him as the head of BJP`s election campaign will help the NDA to oust the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre," Raut said.
