Following the third consecutive victory in the assembly polls, Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi was elected as the leader of the BJP legislature party on Tuesday.

Modi will be sworn-in as the chief minister on Wednesday in a grand ceremony to be attended by top BJP leaders, LK Advani, Arun Jaitley and CMs of all BJP-ruled states.

Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal, Tamil Nadu CM J Jayalalithaa and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray would also attend the function.
