In Rajasthan, a group of approximately 10 newly elected BJP MLAs convened at the residence of former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje in Jaipur on Sunday. The meeting occurred amidst lingering uncertainty regarding the party’s selection for the state’s Chief Minister position.

The BJP is yet to formally announce the legislature party’s meeting to finalize the appointment of the state’s CM. Among those present at Raje’s Civil Lines residence were MLAs Ajay Singh and Babu Singh, according to party sources.

Raje, a two-time Chief Minister, is considered one of the key contenders for the Chief Ministerial role. Earlier in the week, several BJP MLAs had held discussions with Raje, which were interpreted as displays of support. Recently, she also met BJP President JP Nadda during her visit to Delhi.

The party has already designated three observers, including Union Minister Rajnath Singh, to oversee the legislature party meeting.

In the November 30 election results, the BJP secured 115 seats, while the Congress attained 69 seats out of 199. Polls in Karanpur, postponed due to the demise of the Congress candidate, are scheduled for January 5, with results announced on January 8.
