Lucknow: In an attempt to clear all speculations regarding his name being taken up for the Chief Ministerial post in Uttar Pradesh, Minister of State of Communications and Minister of State for Railways Manoj Sinha has refused to be included in the race for the chair.

Sinha on Friday, while speaking to the media said, "I am not in the race to become UP CM and also do not have information about the list."

Despite several names in the race for the most prominent post, the question remains the same, who will succeed Akhilesh Yadav?

With the Home Minister Rajnath Singh and the state BJP Chief Keshav Prasad Maurya ruling themselves out as the frontrunners for the post, the spotlight had shifted to Union Telecom Minister and Lucknow Mayor Dinesh Sharma.

If the BJP Party sources are to be believed, Manoj Sinha, whose journey from a student leader to the Central minister is inspiring for the aspiring student leaders, is the best choice for replacing Akhilesh Yadav.

Meanwhile, the other names being buzzed for the post are of Suresh Khanna, party’s firebrand leader Yogi Adityanath, Santosh Gangwar and Shrikant Sharma.
