Rajya Sabha leader of the opposition Arun Jaitley on Tuesday kept clear of the issue as to whether Gujarat CM Narendra Modi was being considered by the party for prime ministership, but said the latter was a very popular leader.

Responding to a question whether the BJP was waiting for the Congress to declare Rahul Gandhi as its prime ministerial candidate, Jaitley said: “I am not going to get into this debate ... But the fact that he (Modi) is an extremely popular leader and his views are being heard with great attention by a very large section of Indians is itself self-evident.”
