Apocalypso
Q. Why is BJP's most vocal leader quiet these days?I am talking about Sushma Swaraj ??Will Swaraj ever become PM? Unlikely. According to Modi supporters, should BJP come to power, "Sushma ji would be the best Speaker of the Lok Sabha". That is their way of saying she would be given a job that will keep her out of Modi's hair.Swaraj knows this and, perhaps that's why, is biding her time and licking her wounds, quietly. But don't count her out yet.So can she emerge as a Dark Horse in case BJP falls short of the magic number ??
