Gandhinagar: Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sushma Swaraj has praised Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as she said, “Modi is fit to be the next Prime Minister.”

“Narendra Modi has done great work in Gujarat. He is capable of becoming the prime minister of the country... He is fit for it.” Sushma Swaraj added while responding to a query of the reporters at the airport.

The senior BJP leader arrived here for campaigning for BJP candidates in Gujarat Assembly Elections on Narendra Modi’s invitation. She will address two rallies of which one will be in Vadodara while another at Dabhoi town.

She also said that "Congress will be defeated in the parliamentary election scheduled to be held in 2014".

Swaraj was accompanied by senior BJP leader LK Advani and Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi.

LK Advani will campaign in Gujarat over the next two days.

The Bihar Deputy CM will campaign for BJP candidates in Anjar and Gandhidham Assembly constituencies in Kutch district.

While Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi will take a tour of six places in Saurashtra and southern Gujarat.

The Assembly Elections in Gujarat would be held in two phases -- December 13 and 17. The results will be declared on December 20.

Modi starts final leg of campaign from Somnath

Narendra Modi on Saturday launched the final leg of his campaign for the Gujarat Assembly elections after offering prayers at the famous Somnath temple at Veraval.

"They (Congress) will face the worst defeat in Gujarat. The entire country is being crushed under the sins committed by the central government," Modi said outside the temple.

"Congress' misrule, corruption, inflation and neglect of the common man will result in a thumping victory (for the BJP)," he claimed.

Later, addressing a rally in the town, Modi alleged, "Congress has no concern about the development, it believes only in divide and rule policy.

"In the last general election, of 2009, Congress had promised to reduce inflation in 100 days, but it has failed to do so even after more than three years."

Gujaratis had "buried" Congress' vote bank politics and embraced BJP's development politics, he said.

Referring to Congress allegation that the Modi government had allotted pasture lands for industrial use, he said, "In my eleven years as CM, only four per cent of grazing land has been given for industrial purpose, while Congress, between 1980 to 1985, allotted 93 per cent of the grazing land for industrial purpose in South Gujarat."

Narendra modi`s image has been carefully cultivated as a regional leader. So, he is leading the party in Gujerat elections.the party`s think tank does not want Modi at the centre.Modi is not a Vajpayee who had built his reputation as a brilliant parliamentarian. While vajpayee had built a rapport with all prominent opposition leaders, narendra Modi ridicules the opposition leaders and does not miss any opportunity to berate the country`s PM.IF BJP thinks Modi`s popularity can win them the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, then it is high time that Modi fights for a seat in Lok Sabha and is chosen the leader of opposition. The country`s voters will get a chance to know Modi better and judge whether he can run a country as diverse as India.

Modi is fit so am I. But that doesn`t necessarily mean I`ll become the next PM. Once BJP wins election We will see if Sushma says the same thing.

We should look for a leader who can lead India to new height in respect of economy, self pride, defense and equality of all people. See how Modi has transformed Gujrat where all people are on his praise. Modi is younger than Advani and if Advani does not have any objection then Modi should be the best choice for PM of the country.
