In a dramatic twist to the battle for the next president of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), former party chief Rajnath Singh has emerged as the frontrunner for the post. According to sources, current president Nitin Gadkari has told RSS leader Bhaiyaji Joshi that he favours the former party chief if there is no consensus on his name.

Notably, veteran leader LK Advani had earlier rejected the name of Rajnath Singh. However, hectic meetings were held in the national capital to reach the decision. Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj and Rajya Sabha Leader of Opposition Arun Jaitley held talks with RSS leaders Ram Lal.

According to top sources with the BJP, the entire Delhi-based central leadership and a large section of the RSS favour Rajnath Singh as the next president of the Bharatiya Janata Party.

This came hours after speculations of senior leader Yashwant Sinha joining the fray. However, later sources said the Hazaribagh MP only took the nomination papers, but was unlikely to contest.
