Kalyan, who recently launched the Jana Sena party, did not however say anything about the possibility of an alliance with the BJP in the residual Andhra Pradesh.
Kalyan met Modi at the latter’s office in Gandhinagar today.
“Modi is fit to become the Prime Minister, and I and my party support him,” Kalyan said after the meeting. “I am backing Modi, so obviously I am backing the BJP,” he said, when asked whether he would campaign for the BJP in his state.
But he refused to spell out if his party would have a pre-poll tie up with the BJP. He also evaded a question on why he and his brother and Union Minister K Chiranjeevi had chosen different political paths.
