New Delhi: L K Advani is reported to have told senior BJP and RSS leaders that his inner voice doesn’t allow him to support Narendra Modi for the post of prime minister.

According to sources, Advani conveyed this during his meetings with BJP president Rajnath Singh and RSS leaders earlier this week.

The BJP veteran is further reported to have told Rajnath that projecting Modi as the party`s PM candidate would turn out to be a "disaster" and will "destroy the party`s prospects" in the 2014 polls.

The BJP is likely to hold its parliamentary board meet tomorrow to decide on naming Modi as the PM candidate.

Advani is reported to have said that he will attend the meet and oppose Modi’s anointment as the party’s face for the next General Elections.

The meet, if not called tomorrow, could be held on September 16, in time for the crucial announcement ahead of Modi’s birthday on September 17.
