Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan today said Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi or his sister Priyanka are unlikely to pose any challenge to BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.        

"There is no challenge. The people of the country have made up their mind and this has become clear in many programmes being organised (for Modi) in the country," he told reporters at the state BJP office here.  

The CM was answering a queries on whether the duo be able to put up a challenge to Modi after Priyanka joined Rahul Gandhi to fine-tune the campaign strategy of the party.    

Chouhan said that Madhya Pradesh would strive to give its best for bringing BJP back to power at the Centre and also towards making Modi the Prime Minister.     

He said the state unit's contribution towards realising these two goals should be distinct from others.            

Earlier, addressing the concluding session of the Madhya Pradesh BJP's two-day-long state executive meeting, Chouhan urged party leaders to focus on 'Mission-29' by winning all the 29 Lok Sabha seats in the state.
