Will Modi also contest from West Bengal?

Interacting with media, state BJP leader Mukul Roy said: "Even after the third phase of elections, there will be still around 30 seats to be polled in the state. We have urged Narendra Modi to contest from the state to rescue people from the Mamata Banerjee regime."
