New Delhi: New power equations in BJP appear to be the focus of hectic consultations between the party leaders and RSS brass amid questions over what role senior leaders like L K Advani would have in a Narendra Modi-led dispensation.

BJP president Rajnath Singh held a significant meeting with Advani, where he is reported to have proposed the idea of Speaker’s post for the party patriarch.

Advani, former Deputy Prime Minister in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government, is understood to be reluctant to accept the offer since he prefers a political role, possibly be the NDA chairman.
Senior leader Uma Bharti also met Advani at his residence. Sushma Swaraj put herself in wait and watch situation.
