"If he gets a chance, he will prove to be the best prime minister in the history of the country," Balbir Punj, who is the party leader and incharge of party's affairs in Gujarat, told reporters on the sidelines of the BJP national executive meet when asked whether Modi has the capability of leading the nation.
To a poser who between Modi and L K Advani would become a better Prime Minister, Punj said, "I do not know this. I will not make any comparisons. That the people of the nation will decide." Punj downplayed Modi's absence from the meet saying he was busy in Navratra Puja.
"Whatsoever has been appearing about Narendra Modi not coming to Delhi is just speculation. All such reports are absolutely baseless. He is busy with the Navratra Puja. As a result he has decided to remain in Ahmedabad," he said.
