New Delhi: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) ideologue M G Vaidya advised the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) not to announce the name of its Prime Ministerial candidate before 2013 Assembly elections.

Vaidya, who was a bitter critic of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, seems to be excited after Modi’s third consecutive victory in Gujarat Assembly elections and sees him as a potential candidate in race for PM’s post.  

Though the BJP’s central leadership is silent over Modi’s candidature for the top post, his supporters has raised the pitch mounting pressure to announce the name of the candidate.

Amidst all this, Vaidya in his recent blog praised Modi saying that he clinched victory in difficult circumstances and hence nobody can question his capability. He also stressed that Modi’s popularity remains intact despite winning lesser number of seats in comparison to 2007.

Vaidya advised the BJP to concentrate on states going to polls next year. Politically important Delhi, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Karnataka will go to polls in 2013.

According to the RSS ideologue, the BJP should announce the name of its Prime Ministerial candidate only after 2013 Assembly elections get over.
