Several names are doing rounds in the BJP for the vice-presidential post. Prominent among them are Venkaiah Naidu, Sushma Swaraj and Najma Heptulla. Sources say the BJP top leadership may pick the vice-presidential candidate from South India as presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind belongs to North. But, Venkaiah Naidu seems to be not interested in the vice-president post. Moreover, the BJP will not get as powerful leader like Venkaiah to deal with South Indian states. Another version is that the BJP is considering Sushma Swaraj name as the party faced criticism for ignoring LK Advani for president post. She is the follower of Advani.
