Bihar BJP chief ducks query on a bigger Modi role
Patna: Bihar BJP chief C P Thakur, who had earlier backed Narendra Modi's candidature for the prime ministership, on Friday ducked a question about the possibility of the Gujarat Chief Minister assuming a bigger role in the party at the national level after the Assembly polls in his state but said BJP's return to power in Gujarat for a fourth term was a foregone conclusion. He was unequivocal in his praise for Modi for development in the state.
