About Vadodara:

Vadodara is the other constituency from where BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi will contest the Lok Sabha elections, the first being Varanasi. Vadodara's sitting BJP MP Balkrishna Shukla expressed his happiness over party's decision. "Modi is my political guru. He had encouraged me to contest the 2009 Lok Sabha polls when I was still the city mayor. I am very happy to vacate my seat for him. Shukla won the 2009 Lok Sabha elections with a huge margin of 1.32 lakh votes substituting the three times seating MP Jataben Thakkar. It is expected that Modi's candidature from Vadodara will increase the voter turnout across Gujarat, especially central Gujarat.
