Mumbai: Senior BJP leader Prakash Javdekar on Friday said that Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi was an "asset" and "most favourite" among all leaders of the party.

"Modi is an asset for the party. People are attracted by his style of functioning. BJP does not have to go searching for the prime ministerial candidate like in Congress", Javadekar said.

Javadekar said people always wanted the leader like Modi because he has delivered on the promise of good governance in Gujarat. "The reality is that Modi is the most favourite among all leaders", Javadekar said responding to a query.

On BJP's prime ministerial candidate for 2014 general elections, Javadekar said the decision in this regard will be taken by the party president Rajnath Singh. To a query on political misuse of CBI, Javadekar said the central agency is the main "ally" of Congress.

"If Congress has guts it should call for early elections. We are ready for the polls," he said.
