New Delhi: Congress leader Shakeel Ahmad in a tweet posted on Friday wondered if Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Rajnath Singh has ulterior motives in projecting Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as the party`s prime ministerial candidate.
"Is Rajnath ji with the help of Rashtriya Swayam Sevak (RSS) using Modi ji to sideline Advani ji & Sushma ji for his own chance, when Modi ji will be rejected in 2014?" Shakeel Ahmad wondered in his tweet.
It is widely known that veteran BJP leader L K Advani has reservations about declaring Narendra Modi the party`s prime ministerial candidate.
Rajnath Singh, however, said on Thursday that all senior leaders were being consulted on the issue of who should be projected as the party`s prime ministerial candidate, and sought to downplay the reservations of Advani.
