Advani is the tallest leader: Chouhan
New Delhi: Amid the raging debate over BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Monday hailed L K Advani as party's "tallest leader".
At the same time, Chouhan made it clear that the issue of Advani being the Prime Ministerial candidate will be decided by the party's Parliamentary Board and "I am not voting for anybody". His comments came a day after Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, the top leader of BJP ally JD(U), objected to the projection of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as NDA's Prime Ministerial candidate and senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha favouring Advani for the top post.
"BJP is blessed to have so many seasoned leaders like Advaniji and Atalji...These two leaders are responsible for nurturing the party. It's a blessing for our party that there are so many talented leaders with us but no doubt Advani is the tallest leader. Everybody in this country knows this fact," Chouhan told an English news channel.
He said the party also has a second-line leadership of Rajnath Singh, Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley, Murli Manohar Joshi and Modi. However, when queried on Advani as BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate, he said the Parliamentary board will decide on it.
