Apropos the spat between Arun Jaitley and the tentwallah, frankly, I as usual don't have a clue. Gossip, buzz and conspiracy theories are par for the course in the Byzantine world of Delhi, but today's Hindustan Times editorial has got the grapevine going a bit more than the usual:

So, in a way, Rajnath Singh as well as Mr Advani may well represent the stage in this projected trajectory that needs to be jettisoned before the BJP reaches for the proverbial stars again. And what better catalyst for this cleansing process than an electoral rout goaded by infighting? That Narendra Modi has long-term prime ministerial aspirations is no secret. It isn’t that he and his supporters within the party — Mr Jaitley being one of them — find leapfrogging over the current crop of top BJP leaders repugnant. It’s just that doing that now would be contaminating themselves with a losing touch. For this faction of the BJP, not being associated with Mr Singh et al is a canny decision.
