"Why delay in naming Chief Ministers": Shiv Sena (UBT) MP Priyanka Chaturvedi questions BJP
New Delhi: Shiv Sena (UBT) MP Priyanka Chaturvedi on Thursday questioned the Bharatiya Janata Party over its process of naming Chief Ministers in three states where the party registered Assembly polls victories and said that BJP is playing musical chairs right now with only two people Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah taking the call.
Priyanka Chaturvedi called the delay in naming Chief Ministers 'Unfortunate'.
"Because they (BJP) are busy in musical chairs. They have the majority, and people have expressed their trust in him. Elected MLAs have to make a decision that who will be the leader. But that process has been done away in the BJP. Only two people make decisions on the CM - PM Narendra Modi and Amit Shah. Results were out on December 3 and today is 7th December," Priyanka Chaturvedi told ANI.
She further said that if the same delay in appointing Chief Ministers had happened with Congress then the media would have debated it day and night.
"If this would have happened under Congress then 100 debates would have happened on TV. This is unfortunate," Rajya Sabha MP said.
Earlier today, Priyanka Chaturvedi also posted on X questioning the media silence on this issue.
"No one in the media asking BJP why the delay in naming the CMs of the three states they have won. It is the 4th day since the results were declared. Koi nahin. Ye bhi theek hai," she posted on X.
The election results in four states, especially the losses in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, came as a huge blow to the Congress's hopes for 2024 as it is now out of power across a vast swathe of the Hindi heartland.
The BJP, which had been battling close to 20 years of incumbency, won a resounding mandate bagging 163 seats while the Congress finished a distant second at 66 seats.
In Rajasthan, the vote count painted a starkly different picture to what some of the pollsters had predicted, with the BJP poised to form the government, winning 115 seats, and the Congress trailing at 69 seats. Of the 90 assembly constituencies in Chhattisgarh, the BJP bagged 54 while the Congress won 35.
