Gandhinagar: Leaving the bitterness of ticket row behind, BJP stalwarts Narendra Modi and LK Advani jointly addressed party workers in Gandhinagar on Saturday, praising each other and vowing victory for the party in the Lok Sabha elections.
Mody said the party workers have to ensure victory of Advani by a "huge margin" from Gandhinagar. The Gujarat Chief Minister also recalled the "illustrious" political career to Advani and contribution to the country. Later, Modi also accompanied Advani in filing his nomination papers.
Advani is not on the best of terms with Modi after he opposed Modi's anointment as BJP's PM candidate recently.
The BJP veteran wanted to contest from Bhopal and not Gandhinagar, but he later accepted the party's decision to field him from Gujarat in the Lok Sabha elections. However, in a show of unity, the veteran leader praised the Gujarat CM saying that he would be the next Indian Prime Minister.
He also said that he was rejoiced to contest from the seat, he is currently an MP from.
"My association with Gandhinagar is more than polls. This time BJP will win and make government with majority and Narendra Modi will become PM," said Advani.
Enthusing party workers for the Lok Sabha polls, Modi took on the UPA saying that the party would not be able to open its account in many states. "There will be many states where Congress will not even win one seat," said the BJP nominee.
