A six-time BJP MLA from Gujarat's Vadodara district Sunday demanded the party's Lok Sabha ticket from the prestigious seat.
The PM then relinquished it and retained Varanasi Lok Sabha seat in Uttar Pradesh.
Madhu Srivastav, six-time MLA from the district's Waghodiya Assembly constituency, said he wanted to fight the Lok Sabha polls from Vadodara to strengthen PM Modi's hands and spread the latter's "sabka saath, sabka vikas" initiative.
"I have communicated to the BJP central leadership that I want to contest Lok Sabha polls from Vadodara," he added.
