However, many raised questions regarding BJP's choice of timing to take the crucial decision. Many asked -- why has the party selected Friday, the 13th as its D-day? The question has been popped up following an old belief which says that Friday, the 13th is one of the worst days to do anything good. It is believed to be an "unlucky" day.
However, contradicting to the previous concept, many people consider Friday, the 13th is lucky for sowing the seed of a new plant. It seems that senior leaders of BJP are optimistic and decided to go by the positive vibe. Hence, BJP President Rajnath Singh decided to hold the meeting on Friday, Sept 13.

Despite veteran BJP leader LK Advani's reservation on the announcement on Modi, it seems that the party would go after its Plan B. Singh is now hoping that no new problem of dissent comes up at the crucial parliamentary board meeting of the party. Sources said Rajnath is trying to avoid a voting on the prime ministerial candidate at all cost.
Advani and another party leader Sushma Swaraj earlier had claimed that BJP should not declare its PM candidate till the assembly elections which are due in five states -- Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Delhi, and Mizoram.
