In an interview to TV news channel Times Now, Modi expressed confidence about his Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) victory in the coming Lok Sabha polls, but remained tight-lipped over his own candidature for the prime minister's post.

"In 2014, BJP will set the agenda for polls, people of the country will make BJP victorious, and the way people of Gujarat have formed a Congress-free Gujarat, people of the country will have a Congress-free India," he said.

Modi also termed dynastic politics a bad trend for any democracy.

"Dynastic politics should not be encouraged in democracy. It does not mean two people of one family can not be in politics, but unfortunately, the country presently is in the clutches of dynastic rule," he said.

Modi is being seen as a strong contender for the prime minister's post from BJP.
