Janata Dal-United spokesperson KC Tyagi on Tuesday said the possibility of Kumar campaigning in Gujarat was being discussed within the party and a decision in this regard will be taken soon.

"The plan will be finalized in a day or two. At the moment, I can neither confirm nor deny whether it will work out," he said.

Tyagi, however, said party chief Sharad Yadav will campaign in Gujarat, and added the JD (U) was likely to contest 10 of the 26 Lok Sabha seats in the state.

JD (U) sources said that the Bihar Chief Minister had planned to campaign in Gujarat during the 2012 assembly elections but pulled out at the last minute.

Modi is contesting the Lok Sabha polls from Vadodara in Gujarat and Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh.
