The Shiv Sena will contest the 2014 Lok Sabha polls as part of the NDA, party supremo Uddhav Thackeray said Friday but refused to comment on the Narendra Modi factor.

"We will contest the next election as part of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA). And we will win because the people are tired and angry with the Congress," Thackeray told reporters here.

The Shiv Sena chief was in Panaji for the inauguration of a Marathi film festival.

Thackeray, however, refused to comment as to whether the Shiv Sena was okay with the possibility of the Gujarat chief minister being projected as the NDA's prime ministerial candidate.

"The issue has not come to us yet. When we decide we will speak to the media there (in Maharashtra)," Thackeray said.
