The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leadership in Rajasthan has reiterated that the decision of the party’s parliamentary board on the Chief Minister’s post will be final. This comes amidst intense speculation over the contenders for the top post following the BJP’s victory in the state assembly elections.
No announcement yet: Despite the BJP’s decisive win, with 115 seats in the 199-member assembly, it has not yet announced its choice for the Chief Minister. This has led to speculation about the frontrunners, including former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, and several MLAs.
Parliamentary Board’s final say: Arun Singh, BJP’s in-charge for Rajasthan, has emphasized that the decision on the CM will be taken by the party’s parliamentary board, a high-powered committee that includes senior leaders. He has asserted that this decision will be binding on all party members and MLAs.
Vasundhara Raje’s future uncertain: As a two-time former Chief Minister of Rajasthan and a senior BJP leader, Vasundhara Raje remains a prominent figure in the state’s politics. However, the party’s decision on the CM could have a significant impact on her future role.
Possible scenarios: Several possibilities exist for Vasundhara Raje:
- If chosen as CM: She would continue to lead the state and play a crucial role in implementing the BJP’s agenda.
- If not chosen as CM: She could remain a prominent voice within the party and potentially take on a role in the central government or the party organization.
- Stepping back from active politics: While less likely, Raje could choose to step back from active politics and focus on other pursuits.
Speculation continues: Until the BJP announces its official decision, speculation about Vasundhara Raje and the other contenders will likely continue. This uncertainty adds to the intrigue surrounding the political landscape in Rajasthan and the BJP’s future plans for the state.
It’s important to note that this is a developing situation and information is subject to change. Stay tuned for further updates on the decision of the parliamentary board and the future of Vasundhara Raje in the Rajasthan political scene.
