Yashwant Sinha has sparked speculations that he might enter the race for party presidency and hence, remained a top Twitter trend for the day:
Yashwant Sinha asks @PMOIndia to order CBI probe into charges levelled by Shrikant Jena against Azhagiri. Says stink of big scam writ large.

Yashwant Sinha candidacy at this stage would still be superficial, academic – what would be interesting is if a real claimant were to emerge

Frankly, what's wrong if yashwant sinha challenges Gadkari. Its democracy afterall. Let there be a contest? Wondering

Mahesh Jethmalani has also “threatened” to stand for the President position for BJP. Here are a few reactions:
Ram Jethmalani threatened to stand for Prez of India. Mahesh Jethmalani threatens to stand for President of BJP. A family of some standing.

Dear Mahesh Jethmalani, You SO need to follow the strategy of Modiji. Perception management is what we're talking about. Hai na!?#PawanKhera

The same constitution which now disallows Mahesh Jethmalani to contest was tweaked to allow NG a shot at second consecutive term.

LeT chief Hafiz Saed has denied role in 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks. Tweeple reacted this way:
In a different universe, at another time, Hafiz Saeed was responsible for 26/11. Now he is Shinde's ally in fighting terrorism in India
— Sunanda Vashisht (@sunandavashisht) January 21, 2013
Before taking a stand against terrorism BJP will ask itself "Aray Hafiz Saeed kya kahenge" Glad they are not in power.
