New Delhi: BJP President Rajnath Singh on Thursday said the party has not taken any decision on projecting a chief ministerial candidate for the forthcoming Delhi Assembly elections or zeroed in on any name for the purpose.

"The party has not closed in on any candidate for the post of Delhi Chief Minister. The BJP Parliamentary Board has not taken any decision on the issue. It will take a decision on the matter at the appropriate time," Singh said.

BJP is also undecided about whether it should project a chief ministerial candidate for the Delhi elections or take a call after the polls.

Singh`s statement today comes in the wake of reports that BJP has decided on the CM candidate and an announcement is imminent. The names of former minister Harshvardhan, Delhi BJP Unit Chief Vijay Goel and others have reportedly been doing the rounds.

Party sources said the top brass is apprehensive about announcing any leader as a chief ministerial candidate as declaring a name may lead to acrimony and may jeopardise the party`s prospects in the Assembly elections due later this year.
