The new-found bonhomie between Nitin Gadkari and Narendra Modi could see the Gujarat chief minister getting into the party's Parliamentary Board soon.
Indications are that Gadkari could induct Modi into the powerful organ of the party following the recent coming together of the two that seems to have upset quite a few equations.
Asked whether any party chief minister could get into the Parliamentary Board, a veiled reference to Modi, BJP spokesperson Ravishankar Prasad said, "BJP President has discretionary powers and no one objects to it."
Only yesterday Gadkari is believed to have extracted the resignation of Sanjay Joshi from the national executive at the behest of Modi.
Today, Modi and Gadkari reached the stage together at a public meeting following the national executive here, displaying their new bonding.
Gadkari had come to the venue earlier but waited for Modi to arrive so that they could take the podium together.
