People turned up in force for a 'Friends of BJP' meet in New Delhi a couple of days ago - but Bharatiya Janata Party leaders present there were in for a reality check.
After party general secretary Arun Jaitley's speech, the forum was thrown open for discussions. That's when most of those attending the meet pledged support to the BJP - but not to L K Advani, the party's prime ministerial candidate.
Many even said Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi should be put at the helm of affairs in the party. It seems 2009 is indeed the last chance for BJP's 'iron man' to make it to the top job.
