"I am not a politician," he said, when asked by a questioner at a programme organised by Indian Chamber of Commerce, MCC Chamber of Commerce and the Bharat Chamber of Commerce in Kolkata, about the desire of politicians to aim for the top political post and what was his attitude about it.

"A politician may have (the desire to become Prime Minister) but I am not a politician. I am an apolitical person," he said to a round of applause from those present in the audience.

Modi is widely perceived to be BJP's prime ministerial face in the next Lok Sabha elections.
