Dehradun: BJP, which scored a landslide victory in Uttarakhand, on Sunday said the state legislature party will meet in a couple of days to elect a leader after the parliamentary board takes a final call in the matter.
"A meeting of the state legislature party will be held in a day or two with permission from the central leadershipto elect a leader and a final call in the matter will be taken by the party's Parliamentary Board," state BJP chief Ajay Bhatt told reporters at his first press conference after the party's massive victory in the assembly election.
Though denying he was in the race for any post, Bhatt said he was ready for any responsibility which the party deems fit to assign him.
However, Bhatt said BJP was a very disciplined party and whoever gets the stamp of approval of the partys Parliamentary Board will be the chief minister. Bhatt thanked people of the state for voting overwhelmingly in favour of the BJP and powering it to a "historic" win.
He alsoattributed it to the hard work of its cadres and an eagerness among people to get rid of a "non-performing" and "corrupt" government.
Bhatt said as the main opposition, the party had fulfilled its responsibility of keeping a watch and exposing everything that was wrong about the previous government. "We worked as watchmen andalways exposed the truth which seems to havepaid off," he said.
On Congress' rout which saw even chief minister Harish Rawat and a number of his cabinet colleagues losing their seats,he said it was their total rejection by the people of the state.
