Assembly polls: BJP to 'import' Haryana CM!

BJP president Amit Shah
Chandigarh, Oct 16: The BJP's decision of going alone in Maharashtra and Haryana seems to have paid off if exit polls are any indication. Almost all the pre-poll survey on Thursday have predicted BJP emerging as the single largest party in both the poll bound States. A big question is emerging out of current political scenario - Who will be the CM of Haryana? if exit polls' results prove to be correct.

Traditionally, the party has not been strong in the State and so there are no big leaders on the ground. Under such situation, the BJP may have to import the Chief Ministerial candidate from outside. The politics in Haryana has never been easy, and the task of choosing CM will be a tough one.

The Central leadership will have to pick a strong leader for the post but according to political pundits no party candidate has stature to match the qualities of State Chief Minister. Some are also of views that BJP might appoint a leader as CM who have not fought the Assembly polls.

Political experts say though State BJP president Ram Bilas Sharma may have worked for the party but he does not have qualities to be the next CM.

Gurgaon MP Rao Inderjit Singh a dark horse!
If reports are to be believed, the BJP may also put weight around Gurgaon MP Rao Inderjit Singh who joined the party before the Lok Sabha polls. Singh who belongs to Ahirwal region is considered as strong leader. He is very close to PM Modi. BJP sources say that he has all the qualities to become a non-jat CM.

Senior BJP leader Captain Abhimanyu Singh who contested Haryana Assembly polls from Narnaund seat is also a strong contender for the coveted post. He belongs to Jat community which plays a major role in governing the State's politics, so the party can also go with him. In fact, BJP president Amit Shah, at several times, heaped praises on him. If BJP manages to bag majority in the assembly polls, he stands a fair chance of taking over as State CM.

But if all the above-mentioned alternatives failed, the BJP would have to 'import' its CM from the neighbouring States of Delhi, Punjab and Uttar Pradesh. But, there are just speculations, picture will become clear after the verdict.
