When asked about the dissenting voices of some senior BJP leaders, like Yashwant Sinha, over the issue of GST and demonetisation, Chouhan said one thing is clear that no one has doubts about Modi's intentions.

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan today expressed confidence that the BJP would romp home in Gujarat as the people of the state love and respect Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “The BJP will 100 per cent win the Gujarat polls,” Chouhan told PTI here on the eve of completing 12 years in office. He is the longest serving chief minister of Madhya Pradesh. “The people of Gujarat not only love Modi, but respect, adore him and take pride in him. He commands all these things even across the country, but this is especially overwhelming in Gujarat,” he said. The party has set a target of over 150 seats (out of the 182 seats) in Gujarat. Tremendous progress has taken place in Gujarat. The Sardar Sarovar Dam Project (SSP) has worked wonders, Chouhan added. “The SSP is an example of it. People in far-flung areas, like Saurashtra and Kutch, are getting water, which is unprecedented in history,” he added. “When Modi was the Gujarat chief minister, he toiled hard and now the SSP has changed the state…Not only in Gujarat, the chants of ‘Modi-Modi’ are heard wherever he goes across the globe,” he said.

When asked about the dissenting voices of some senior BJP leaders, like Yashwant Sinha, over the issue of GST and demonetisation, Chouhan said one thing is clear that no one has doubts about Modi’s intentions. “Teething problems do occur. But the initial problems have already been addressed. It will be good for the country’s economy in the long run,” he said. Asked whether he would prefer moving to the Centre in 2019 — a year after the MP Assembly polls, Chouhan said, “I am happy working in Madhya Pradesh.”
