The Uttar Pradesh BJP legislators party meet will be held at 5 pm on Saturday to elect a new leader. The meet will decide on who would be the next chief minister of Uttar Pradesh where the BJP put up a startling show.
The suspense over who would be the next UP CM has been on for the past one week. Several names have cropped up including that of Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh. Singh, however, denied that he was in the race.
Hectic discussions were held by top leaders of the BJP since the past week. Several names had cropped and the BJP's top brass wants a leader who can cater to all communities in UP. The BJP is unlikely to get into caste calculations while chosing a leader. Many in the BJP feel that Rajnath Singh is the right choice for the post.
