Headline: Suspense Over BJP’s Rajasthan Chief Ministerial Pick; Vasundhara Raje Heads to Delhi for Meeting
As suspense lingers over the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) chief ministerial candidate for Rajasthan, former CM Vasundhara Raje traveled to New Delhi on Wednesday night. Raje, a senior party leader, is expected to meet the party high command on Thursday, according to sources within her camp.
This development follows meetings with nearly 60 newly elected BJP MLAs at Raje’s Civil Lines residence on Monday and Tuesday.
The decision on the chief minister’s name will be made by the party’s parliamentary board, preceded by a BJP legislature party meeting. However, the party has not yet announced the schedule for the legislature party meeting.
Raje, a two-time chief minister, is considered one of the frontrunners for the position. The BJP secured 115 seats in the recently declared assembly election results, while the Congress obtained 69 seats.
Elections for 199 out of 200 seats were held on November 25, with polling in Karanpur scheduled for January 5 and results to be declared on January 8 due to the adjournment caused by the demise of the Congress candidate.
