New Delhi, Sep 12 (UNI) Even as speculation was rife that former Deputy Prime Minister L K Advani may be projected as the NDA's Prime Ministerial candidate in the next Lok Sabha polls, senior party leader Murli Manohar Joshi today asserted that the party was yet to take a decision on the issue In an interview to a news channel, Dr Joshi, considered an Advani baiter in the BJP, said a decision on the party's leadership issue was a 'collective responsibility' and the BJP had not taken any such decision.

To a question, Dr Joshi said, ''I was the party president once but this doesn't mean I am in the leadership race.'' Mr Advani had recently asserted that the status of Leader of the Opposition in the West is that of a Prime Minister in waiting.

Apart from Dr Joshi, former union minister Yashwant Sinha too had said the party had not taken any decision in this regard, but did not rule out Mr Advani emerging ahead in the leadership race.
