19 ( ANI ): Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Arun Jaitley on Friday played down his party's spat with the Janata Dal (United) over Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi being touted as the Prime Ministerial candidate for 2014, saying his political outfit is interested in gaining not sacrificing.
While Modi's popularity beyond Gujarat, due to his track record of putting Gujarat on the fast track of development, goes in his favour, there are apprehensions about his acceptability amongst some partners in the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), especially with parties like the Janata Dal (United), which thrives on Muslim votes.
In neighbouring Karnataka, the ruling Janata Dal was humiliated by the BJP and its ally, the regional Lok Shakti party, winning ten of the 14 seats declared.
