Rajasthan Elections 2023: After the spectacular victory of the Bhartiya Janata Party in the Rajasthan Assembly elections 2023, the speculations about the name of the next chief minister are rife. The party had contested the election under collective leadership without making anyone the face of the CM post.

However, without any CM face, the BJP successfully wrested power from Congress in Rajasthan. 

After the massive win, now many speculations are being made about who will be the next chief minister.

Meanwhile, the central leadership of BJP called the senior BJP leader and Alwar MP Mahant Balaknath Yogi to Delhi. Balaknath after arriving in Delhi, when he was asked about the CM post, the BJP leader said he is in politics for the service of the people.
