After meeting LK Advani, Nitin Gadkari and Ananth Kumar reached senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj's residence to meet her on Friday afternoon.
Sushma Swaraj later on along with Gadkari and Kumar then left to Advani's residence, where they will be meeting him and try convincing him to soften his stand on the prime ministerial candidate announcement.
According to reports, Advani refused to budge and maintained his stand in spite of meeting Gadkari earlier during the day. Reports suggested that Sushma Swaraj had finally given in and supported the party's decision to name Modi as the prime ministerial candidate once the meeting with Gadkari took place.
The announcement for BJPs prime ministerial candidate had hit road blocks after Murali Manohar Joshi, LK Advani and Sushma Swaraj had refused to agree with the party's decision to name Modi.
