Jaipur, Dec 13: After a terrific win, Vasundhara Raje, who led Bharatiya Janata Party in Rajasthan, will on Friday be sworn-in as the Chief Minister in Jaipur.

Raje will take the oath of office inside the premises of Assembly building at a ceremony which will be attended by BJP's prime ministerial nominee Narendra Modi, party president Rajnath Singh, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh and other senior leaders, party sources said.
