“As of now, there is no discussion at all in the parliamentary board (on the issue of chief ministerial candidate in UP). When the time will come, the parliamentary board will discuss and decide on it,” he told PTI.
Singh said the party will take a decision depending on the situation.
When pointed out that the BJP got power in Assam where it had declared a chief ministerial candidate and lost in Bihar polls where nobody was projected for the top job, Singh said despite not declaring a CM candidate, the party won Maharashtra, Haryana and Jharkhand.
There has been speculation that the party may project Singh as the BJP’s face in assembly elections in UP.
Singh himself, however, ruled out returning to the state politics saying there are many capable leaders who can be chief ministerial candidate.
Asked about his personal opinion whether the BJP should project someone as CM candidate, Singh said he will place his view before the parliamentary board.
