New Delhi: Veteran lawyer Ram Jethmalani on Tuesday said Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, whom he considers fit for the Prime Minister's post, should be made the BJP President provided the latter has got enough time.

"Of course Narendra Modi according to me, he is my choice of a Prime Minister. But I don't think whether he has got time to become a party president," said Jethmalani.

"These are matters of wisdom on which I am not at the moment a judge nor am I inclined to make any statement," he added, when asked whether Modi should be declared the NDA's Prime Ministerial candidate.

Jethmalani alleged that the first noble objective was to throw out the government of crooks.

Jethmalani further said Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has also come a long way in politics following his commitment and integrity

"He is a man who is at least free from attacks on his character. He is a man of integrity and he has made a fairly successful Chief Minister of Bihar. And I have no doubt that if he sticks on with the NDA, he will have to be considered," he said, when asked about Nitish Kumar's chances as the NDA's Prime Ministerial candidate.
