New Delhi: After BJP’s landslide victory in recently concluded Gujarat assembly polls, it seems the stature of Chief Minister Narendra Modi has taken a major leap and he is most likely to lead his party and its allies in 2014 general elections. This has been said by the party sources.

According to the reports, Modi is most likely to be the in-charge of BJP’s campaign committee for the 2014 general elections and he will be the party’s face. It has also been said that the party’s top leaders have agreed on Modi’s name, though final announcement in this regard is yet to be made.

In case Modi is announced as PM candidate, he would directly take on Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi who is already heading his party’s election coordination committee in 2014.

If the sources are to be believed, the decision to make Modi the head of the election campaign committee for 2014 Lok Sabha polls has the backing of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

An official announcement in this regard could be made in the month of February coinciding with Nitin Gadkari’s appointment as the BJP chief for a second term.

The sources claimed that Modi would continue to be the Chief Minister of Gujarat despite being given an important responsibility at the centre.
