Panaji, June 9: Putting an end to all controversies and speculations, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) finally on Sunday, June 9 promoted Narendra Modi as the convener of BJP campaigning committee for 2014 election. The Gujarat Chief Minister would lead the party during its campaign for upcoming General Election which is expected to be held in 2014.

Modi's elevation received mixed reactions from his followers and critics in the country. While many welcomed BJP's decision, many suspected "conspiracy" behind BJP's decision.

BJP President Rajnath Singh:

We made this decision for the country. BJP considers 2014 Lok Sabha election to be a major challenge. We are determined to win. I made the decision. I was congratulated. But the nation's people and BJP's workers should be congratulated. We have given you a leader that the whole world will respect.

BJP leader Arun Jaitley:

Rajnath Singh made the first step today. Half the work has been done today. The country is feeling leaderless today. Leaders come and go but never has the PM's office been so helpless. Atal Bihari Vajpayee left footprints of leadership; Congress has left a history of non-leadership.

Yashwant Sinha:

I was one of the earliest to speak in favour of Narendra Modi. The cadres wanted it, people wanted it. He has no match in the Congress party or elsewhere. Unfortunately the BJP has one major flaw. We are too sensitive to the views in the media. We often allow media to dictate agenda

Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan:

Modi Ji is an able administrator,strong organization leader, under his stewardship BJP has made a hat trick in Gujarat. Modi Ji is an able administrator,strong organization leader, under his stewardship BJP has made a hat trick in Gujarat.

Goa CM Manohar Parrikar:

Party needed a government and a leader like Narendra Modi who can take decisions.

JD-U spokesperson Neeraj Kumar:

This decision might have been taken on the basis of reports, feedback and experiences of the BJP in the assembly polls held in the recent past.

Congress Minister Rajeev Shukla:

We are not afraid of anybody. We will be victorious in the 2014 elections.
