Amid speculation that former IPS officer Kiran Bedi would be projected as BJP's chief ministerial candidate for the upcoming Delhi polls, Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday said that the party was yet to take a decision on the matter.
"So far there is no decision. The parliamentary board will take a final call," said Singh, adding that the party does not always project its CM candidate.
"In case of Delhi, the parliamentary party will take the final decision," the two-time BJP President said, reports Hindustan Times.
The BJP parliamentary board, comprising 12 members, include Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP president Amit Shah, Singh and finance minister Arun Jaitley among others.
According to BJP sources, indecision over the chief ministerial candidate and lack of movement on candidate selection has created turmoil in the city unit.
The inclusion of Bedi in the party has created more ambiguity as even without being named as the CM candidate, she is being projected as the face of BJP.
With just 18 days of campaigning left, the lack of transparency is making party workers increasingly demotivated, sources said.
The Delhi Assembly Elections are scheduled for 7 February.
