Jaswant don’t want Modi for PM post?

A day after Mr Shatrughan Sinha took a dig at Mr Narendra Modi, another L.K. Advani loyalist, Mr Jaswant Singh, on Saturday tried to preempt any move to name the Gujarat chief minister as the BJP’s PM candidate. Airing his views on a television channel, Mr Singh said: “Personally I’m of the view that this whole clamour for announcing a name is a new phenomena. If the Congress Party is stumbling in doing what it has to do about who is their number one is because of the reality. You don’t know what the country is going to throw up by way of numbers.”
However, a Modi loyalist pointed out that during the 2009 general elections, neither Mr Advani nor his loyalists opposed any move to name the PM candidate before the general elections. Incidentally, Mr Advani had led the BJP during the 2009 Lok Sabha polls. Mr Singh also said that India was “not a presidential system and the necessity of a parliamentary system is to depend on the numbers that emerge”.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
