Wait for BJP`s PM candidate: Venkaiah Naidu
Mumbai: The BJP on Thursday said even though
Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi is an excellent Prime
Minister material, decision on the party`s candidate for the
top post will be taken in 2014.
"Wait till 2014. You will get a good prime ministerial
candidate," BJP National General Secretary Venkaiah Naidu said
at a press conference here.
He said Modi is a good prime ministerial material but
there has to be discussion in the party first. "As and when we
decide, it will be made public," he said.
When asked about Anna Hazare`s criticism of L K Advani`s
yatra, Naidu said it is the party`s programme and not
Hazare`s. "He is apolitical man and does not like politicians.
What can we do," he asked.
The yatra, to begin next month, will cover all important
states and will conclude on November 19.
