Amid intense speculations on who will be BJP's Chief Ministerial candidate in Himanchal Pradesh, there is possibility of the saffron party adopting the "Uttrakhand formula" where it did not project anybody for the top post.

Among the front-runners for the chief minsiter's job in Himanchal Pradesh, where assembly polls will be held later this month, are Shanta Kumar and Prem Kumar Dhumal.

There is a possibility of the BJP adopting the "Uttrakhand formula" to leave both the factions within the party guessing, party sources said on Tuesday.

BJP in-charge of Himachal affairs, Satyapal Jain told PTI that the Party's Parliamentary Board would decide the issue at an "appropraiate time".

Describing Kumar and Dhumal as "two tall leaders of the party in the hill state", Jain said one among them would be the CM while another would go to Delhi on national duty.

Jain said the leadership question was not a big issue for the party in the state right now.
