Prime Minister Narendra Modi is yet to talk about his preference with party leaders, but ruling party said the leadership is not very much keen to repeat the 2002 experiment when it had to field an ‘outsider’, APJ Abdul Kalam, for the top post.

According to sources, Bharatiya Janata Party is looking forward for a President who has “strong BJP affiliation”. On Friday, Union ministers Rajnath Singh and Venkaiah Naidu drove to the residence of BJP patriarch LK Advani and also called on Murli Manohar Joshi.

Even though the two members of the BJP’s Margdarshak Mandal were seen as probable contenders, sources said that meetings that took place with the two were to seek their views on the party’s presidential candidate.
