New Delhi, Apr 01: Former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan Monday indicated his unwillingness to contest the upcoming Lok Saba polls, saying he wants to work in the state.

There have been reports that Chouhan, who is also BJP vice president, may be fielded from one of the seats but the party leadership has so far not made any official comment.

The BJP is yet to announce its candidates for several seats, including Bhopal and Vidisha, in Madhya Pradesh.

Chouhan had won from Vidisha for five consecutive terms before he resigned in 2006 after becoming the state's chief minister.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj represent the constituency in the Lok Sabha. She, however, has announced that she will not fight the polls due to health reasons.

Chouhan remained the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh for 12 years and is also a member of the BJP's parliamentary board, its apex decision making body.
