BJP MEETING -PM MODI, NADDA, SHAH


New Delhi, Dec 6 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which has emerged victorious in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan in the recently concluded Assembly polls is likely to introduce fresh faces for the post of Chief Minister in these three states, a source said on Wednesday.

BJP President JP Nadda met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah at the PM's official residence here on Tuesday evening to discuss the chief ministerial probables for the three states.

The meeting, according to sources, lasted over 4 hours. It was decided during the meeting to introduce young leaders as chief ministers who have the potential of being seen as the 'face of the party' for the next 20-25 years.

.A total of 21 MPs were fielded in the three states -- Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan, by the BJP. Of them, 12 emerged victorious.

Among fresh faces, Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia's name is one of the most discussed one, a source said.

If incumbent Shivraj Singh Chouhan is not given the CM post for the fifth time, the BJP is likely to be one of the leaders among Scindia, Tomar, Patel and Kailash Vijayvargiya.

In Rajasthan, the BJP is likely to introduce a new face as CM instead of senior party leader Vasundhara Raje.

Diya Kumari, who is also from a royal family like Raje, might be among the contenders for the CM post considering she is younger, and also has the prospect of becoming another CM, sources said.

Besides, Baba Balaknath, a Hindutva face, could also emerge as a CM face, on the lines of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

Also, Union ministers Arjun Ram Meghwal and Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, senior BJP leader Kirodi Lal Meena and Rajasthan unit BJP chief CP Joshi are also among the CM contenders.

Meanwhile, in Chhattisgarh, tribal faces of the state -- Union Minister Renuka Singh, former state unit president Vishnudev Sai, and current state president Arun Sao, and former IAS officer OP Chaudhary, are being considered as CM probables.

According to sources, the high command is likely to appoint a Chief Minister along with Deputy Chief Ministers in the three states.

The BJP would soon finalise the names and a final decision would be taken at the BJP Parliamentary Board meeting following which the party would announce the Chief Ministers' names.
