BJP state president Ram Bilash Sharma, national spokesperson Captain Abhimanyu Singh, party's Kisan Morcha president Om Prakash Dhankhar and Union minister Rao Inderjit Singh are considered the front runners for the top job in Haryana.
Two days back, BJP workers organized a felicitation function at Hisar to welcome Captain Abhimanyu for helping BJP win 18 seats in western Uttar Pradesh in the parliamentary elections. He was the organizational in-charge of party affairs during the polls. On the occasion, an audio CD was being played in which Captain was urged to take charge of Haryana as its CM.
Similarly, on the inauguration of national executive meeting of BJP Kisan Morcha at Bahadurgarh on June 7, workers raised slogans in favour of Dhankhar, saying "Haryana ka mukhyamantri kaisa ho, Om Prakash Dhankhar jaisa ho."
On the same day, two functions were organized in southern Haryana where BJP state leaders expressed similar sentiments for Rao Inderjit, the newly-elected MP from Gurgaon. BJP MP from Bhiwani-Mahendergarh, Dharmbir Singh, openly stated that Rao should be nominated as CM candidate, giving him credit for party's best performance in Lok Sabha polls in the state.
However, Dhankhar told TOI that his party has not yet decided whether a leader would be projected as CM candidate before the upcoming assembly elections. "Talks of engagement are obvious in a family which has marriageable children," he summed up the issue.
According to the leader of BJP legislative group in the state assembly, Anil Vij, the party would discuss the issue of alliance with its partner HJC before taking a decision on CM candidate.
As per a previous agreement, the CM for first two-and-a-half years would be from HJC. However, it is improbable at the moment that BJP would project Kuldeep Bishnoi as CM candidate in view of the changed circumstances, said a BJP leader. BJP won seven out of 10 Lok Sabha seats in Haryana, securing about 35% of the total votes polled.
