Gadkari met Advani at his residence in New Delhi and held a short meeting with the senior leader to convince him on Modi's name, party sources said.

BJP parliamentary board likely to name Modi as prime ministerial candidate on Friday

Advani, Sushma Swaraj and Murli Manohar Joshi reportedly have reservations about declaring Modi as the prime ministerial candidate before the assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Delhi and Mizoram.

Gadkari flew to Nagpur after his meeting with Advani. He is expected to convey the outcome of his meeting with Advani to the RSS leadership. RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat had held a dinner meeting with Advani and Swaraj last week to discuss this issue. Earlier, RSS general secretary Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi had also met Advani and Swaraj separately to convince them.
