After JD (U), Shiv Sena wants BJP to name PM candidate

Mumbai: In more trouble for the BJP, the Shiv Sena on Wednesday said that the Bharatiya Janata Party should make it clear as to who will be its Prime Ministerial candidate.

An editorial in the Shiv Sena mouthpiece, Saamna, says an NDA meeting should be called and a decision should be taken.

In reference to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, the editorial further says that while naming the PM candidate may get the BJP five to 10 seats extra, some old allies will leave costing the NDA as many as 25 seats.

The editorial also tells the BJP not to take them for granted. The mouthpiece says, "While Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi may be one of the PM candidates, the BJP must note that the NDA will take a final decision."

The Shiv Sena's warning to the BJP comes amidst rising tensions between another NDA constituent Janata Dal United and the BJP. The JD(U) has set a year-end deadline for the BJP to announce its PM candidate.
