Former deputy prime minister and senior BJP leader L.K. Advani Saturday said Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi will become the next prime minister of India.
Advani was confident about the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) winning the Lok Sabha polls and said the next government will formed under the party's leadership. "Modi will become the PM of the country," he said while addressing the media in Gandhinagar.
Advani said he never intended not to contest from Gujarat. He said the areas that is now Gujarat had given him shelter after the country's partition in 1947.
Advani is likely to file his nomination papers Saturday from the Gandhinagar Lok Sabha constituency.
