Anointment of Gujarat CM likely before his b’day

With Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) giving its go ahead for Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi, to be declared as the prime ministerial candidate, it is now expected that  Modi may be announced as the prime ministerial candidate within a week.

Sources say that  Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)  president Rajnath Singh is  working out a date when all parliamentary board members will be present. Sources say that Modi’s declaration could come on 16 September, a day before his birthday.

On Tuesday RSS yet again  made it clear to BJP it wants Narendra Modi to be declared as Prime Ministerial candidate, contending that he enjoys the support and respect of people ‘who want change’ but said the timing of the announcement has to be decided by the party. RSS leader Ram Madhav  said that  the Sangh members have felt during their programmes across the nation that people want change.

‘The country wants a change and we also realise it. During the two-day meeting between RSS and BJP this issue came up and it has been conveyed to part leadership. Now the decision has to be taken by them,’  said Madhav.
