Senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader Vasundhara Raje has been summoned at BJP national president JP Nadda’s residence at 3.30 pm today in connection with the scuffle incident which reportedly took place among the party MLAs of Kota division in a resort on the Sikar road in Rajasthan, sources said. The massive development comes amid the suspense over the CM face of the party. She arrived in the national capital on Wednesday night.

According to sources, the fight broke out among five to six MLAs. Shocked at the development, a new MLA told the other MLAs that he would report the incident to his father. As soon as the incident was reported, a few BJP leaders were rushed to the resort to handle the situation. They were brought out of the resort at around 4 am in the morning.

The sources in the Raje camp said she would be meeting other leaders of the party's high command as well. She might be apprised by the leadership about their decision regarding the leaders who will be the part of the next Cabinet in Rajasthan. She could also put forward her views on the next government.

The development came after nearly 60 of the newly elected BJP MLAs met her at her Civil Lines residence on Monday and Tuesday.

The party sources said the name of the chief minister will be decided by the party's parliamentary board and before that, a BJP legislature party meeting will be called.

However, the party has not yet made any announcement regarding the legislature party meeting.

Raje, a two-time chief minister, is among the frontrunners for the post of chief minister.

In the assembly election results declared on Sunday, the BJP got 115 seats while the Congress secured 69 seats.

Elections on 199 out of 200 seats in the state were held on November 25.

Polling in Karanpur, where the election was adjourned due to the demise of the Congress candidate, will be held on January 5 and results will be declared on January 8.
