According to some reports, Prime Minister Narendra Modi might contest from Vadodara Lok Sabha constituency again. He had won the 2014 elections from Vadodara, however, chose to retain Varanasi Lok Sabha seat. Though his battle from the eastern UP city is almost finalised, there hasn't been any word on the Gujarat seat.
Speculations in the political spectrum reflect that the Gujarat seat is one of the safest for BJP. Back in 2014, the then CM, Narendra Modi had contested from the seat as the party's PM candidate, defeating Congress's Madhusudan Mistry.
He had fought on two seats, Vadodara and Varansi and won both seats. He later vacated the Vadodara seat.
This time, BJP has announced Prashant Patel's candidature from Vadodara seat, while an official announcement on Modi's seat is yet to be made.
In 2017 assembly polls, the Central government party had won all the seven seats which falls into Vadodara Lok Sabha constituency
