BJP not to declare CM candidate in UP polls : Amit Shah
Lucknow: BJP National President Amit Shah has virtually ruled out that the party would announce chief ministerial face in the coming assembly election in the state.
'' The Bharatiya Janata Party has never done in other states like Goa, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat so why this question is asked about Uttar Pradesh, '' he said while speaking at an event organised by a private news channel in Lucknow on Saturday.
Substantiating his statement, Shah sought to make it clear that BJP had total internal democracy and once the party was in the majority, it would not be difficult to choose the CM. Adding, he said there were no dearth of able leaders in the party in UP.
When asked that the saffron party has often been accused of trying to break other parties, the BJP President said '' we have to strengthen our party and nothing to do with others.'' In reply to another query, he said the BJP would contest UP polls on the plank of development.
