Bhopal, Aug 27 (UNI) Congress General Secretary V Narayanasamy today said that his party would not project anybody as chief minister in the run-up to assembly polls in Madhya Pradesh and neighbouring Chhattisgarh.
''The Congress tradition is to first focus on the hustings and then let the MLAs decide on their leader. Obviously, the party high command reserves the right to decide on who will assume the chief minister's post,'' Mr Narayanasamy, who is the party's election incharge for both states, told reporters here this evening.
When asked whether a person who would not contest the polls could be elevated to the august chair, the Congress leader gave the example of Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad who was the party's state unit supremo prior to the hustings.
