It was Pandya's first interactions with the two top BJP leaders after he withdrew from the poll fray following stiff opposition from Modi to his re-nomination from Ellisbridge constituency.
"I will mainly be campaigning in Ahmedabad, particularly in Ellisbridge and some other constituencies," he said after the meetings in New Delhi.
"They (party leadership) wanted to give me a ticket, but there were things beyond their control... So I decided not to participate in the polls," he said.
Asked why he was not considered for re-nomination from Ellisbridge, he said, "The reason will be known to the decision-makers."
