Actor and BJP MP from Patna Sahib Shatrughan Sinha on Saturday said that party leaders L K Advani, Yashwant Sinha and Ram Jethmalani are all eligible for the prime minister's post. "All three leaders L K Advani, Yashwant Sinha and Ram Jethmalani have the stature needed to become the prime minister."

Responding to queries regarding BJP national president Nitin Gadkari, Sinha said: "I am very much with Yashwant Sinha and there is no question of backing out from that position".
