BJP president battle: Notification for election likely today, RSS works to build consensus around Gadkari

New Delhi: The notification for the BJP presidential elections is likely to be announced on Sunday. While the RSS is backing Nitin Gadkari, sources say that veteran leader LK Advani has proposed Sushma Swaraj's name for the post.

Sources said that Advani was uncomfortable with the renomination of Gadkari as he faces a slew of corruption charges. Meanwhile, reports say that RSS is working to build consensus around Gadkari.

The sources added that the LK Advani camp is also not comfortable with Rajnath Singh's candidature for the post.
