"I have interacted with Rahul Gandhi, Narendra Modi and Arvind Kejriwal - The three most likely PM candidates and have evaluated them in as rational a manner as possible, given the challenges that are facing our nation. I am choosing to support Narendra Modi for the PM. I strongly believe that he has the necessary ability, determination and commitment to Governance, development and opportunities for all citizens - regardless of religion, caste and gender," Chandrasekhar said.
Chandrasekhar said he found the necessary qualities in Modi to lead the nation
He also said that there is no fence-sitting in this election and one needs to move from "despair to hope, from corruption to good governance, from shame to pride!"
