Modi, who continues to be the top choice for the coveted post of Prime Minister, has so far been critical of the Opposition parties, particularly the Congress. He has also left no stone unturned in targetting the Gandhi family.

Modi, who is in direct competition with Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for the Prime Minister’s post, had earlier called him ‘Mr Golden Spoon’.

Attempting to reach out to the middle-class and lower middle-class, Modi has even launched his ‘chaipe charcha' or discussion over tea campaign during which he interacts with the people and addresses their grievances.

Modi, whose biggest strength lies in his direct connect with the people, draws applause whenever he walks up to the dais. The BJP’s prime ministerial candidate talks to the crowd, asks questions and even makes them laugh as he takes on the Congress in his election rallies.
Modi asks questions and waits for answers, making his speeches more of a dialogue. In between, he punches in the most important message - vote for BJP for a strong and developed India.

According to reports, a decision on Modi’s candidature could be taken when the BJP's Election Committee meets on March 8.

BJP strategists are of the opinion that Modi should contest from Varanasi. There are even reports suggesting that several BJP leaders are trying to convince sitting MP from Varanasi and senior BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi, who has been reluctant to give up his seat. The BJP leaders want Joshi to contest from another constituency.

But Modi faces a tough challenge from within the BJP as party veteran Lal Krishna Advani is reportedly not happy with the Gujarat Chief Minister’s rise. The BJP leaders have, however, rubbished the report and said all is well within the saffron outfit.
