Sushma Swaraj is unusually quiet these days.

On one subject: Narendra Modi.

The Leader of the Opposition in the outgoing Lok Sabha is contesting from Vidisha, Madhya Pradesh, where her speeches are all fired up, but when it comes to NaMo, Sushmaji goes mum.

The senior BJP leader does not say a word about her party's prime ministerial candidate. Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is backing her to the hilt.

Chouhan too does not relish talking about Modi. There are few banners and posters in MP with Modi's name or photographs.

Sushmaji is pitted against Congress leader Digvijaya Singh's brother Laxman Singh, who was in the BJP till a year ago.
