New Delhi: After initially being in two minds on Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's bid to become the Prime Minister, senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha on Thursday jumped in his support.

Talking to reporters, Sinha said, "The next Prime Minister of this country will be Narendra Modi. (Danke ki chot pe kehta hoon ki Narendra Modi is desh ke agle pradhan mantri hoonge ).

Sinha made this remark when asked to comment if any decision on Modi will be taken in today's crucial BJP-RSS meeting.

The former Finance Minister has also given a piece of advice to his party colleague Shatrughan Sinha, who created a stir and likely to face disciplinary action from the party for suggesting that any decision on the BJP's PM nominee should be taken by consensus and consultations with all, including party veteran LK Advani.

The actor-politician also praised Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who is strongly attacked Modi's secular credentials and parted ways with the BJP.

Sinha also asked the actor-turned-politician to desist from making such statements.
