Union minister of state for planning, statistics and programme implementation (Independent Charge) Rao Inderjit Singh on Monday said the decision on who would be the next chief minister of Haryana will be taken by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) high command.
"The trend in Haryana is that which ever region the CM belongs to, only that region gets developed. Thus, everyone wants that the CM should be from their region. In the end, it will be the decision of party high command," Singh told media here.
When asked about the possibility of him becoming the chief minister of Haryana, he said, "That is a hypothetical question. The party"s parliamentary board will decide about that."
Contesting the Haryana Assembly polls on its own for the first time, the BJP attained a majority by bagging 47 of the 90 assembly seats in the state.
