Lucknow: Amidst reports that BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi would contest the Lok Sabha polls from Uttar Pradesh, BJP state incharge Amit Shah today said it was not yet decided.

“It's not yet decided from where he (Modi) will contest. Whether he would contest from UP or not is still undecided...”, Shah told reporters in reply to a question.

On declaration of Lok Sabha candidates from UP, Shah said BJP would contest from all 80 seats and the ground work at the state level had been done and now the Parliamentary board would declare the candidates.

Asked whether the party considered Aam Aadmi Party as a challenge, Shah said BJP considered every opponent as a challenge and formulated its policies keeping all factors in mind.

“We take every opponent as a challenge...In democracy, everyone has the right to put forth their views and it is up to people to decide whom to select or elect,” he said.

Taking a potshot at the SP government, Shah said withdrawing cases lodged against a particular community in the Muzaffarnagar riots was “appeasement” and it should not be done by any government.
