The BJP on Saturday was non-committal on Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi campaigning in the Bihar elections, indicating it would take a call when the polls are near.

“Why are you so keen about campaign details? That will be known to you at an appropriate time. We are now in the process of selection of candidates,” party leader M. Venkaiah Naidu said.

He maintained that campaign issues would be taken up “when the question of elections comes”. “(The) party will decide who will campaign. Who is there, who is not, that will be seen and known.”

CM Nitish Kumar had left it to the BJP to decide whether Modi will campaign for the party during polls.
