Even as speculation over NDA's Prime Ministerial candidate refuse to die down, Punjab deputy chief minister belonging to key constituent Shiromani Akali Dal has said it is time the alliance declares its candidate for country's top post.

"BJP (the main constituent) should declare the PM candidate... whosoever the person may be, we (SAD) are with the BJP's choice," Akali Dal President Sukhbir Singh Badal said here at his residence.

Sukhbir said their should not be any confusion in the mind of voters and they should now know for whom they will vote in the next Lok Sabha polls.

"People of the country are disillusioned. There is political and economic crisis in the country. The present government (UPA) has shaken the economy of the country," said the deputy CM.

His statement came after Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi earlier in the day said that he does not dream to be a PM as he has to serve Gujarat till 2017.

Sukhbir further said that whenever SAD contested any election, the party always made it clear in advance that Parkash Singh Badal was going to be their leader.
