Patna: Bihar's ruling Janata Dal (United) on Friday urged BJP not to be stubborn over the projection of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as its prime ministerial candidate for the next general elections.

"The BJP should think and rethink after the results of the Karnataka polls. It is not easy for the BJP to go it alone if it is keen to defeat the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) in the 2014 polls," JD-U spokesperson Devesh Chand Thakur said.

Thakur said it is for the BJP to decide its future course of action, and the JD-U could only make suggestions in the matter. "The situation is turning favourable for the NDA across the country, thanks to the misrule and corruption of the Congress-led UPA government. The BJP should take that into consideration," he added.
