"It is the prerogative of the BJP Parliamentary Committee and high command to name the chief ministerial candidate for the next Assembly elections," Mr Munda said when asked to comment on party leader and filmstar Shatrughan Sinha's statement that senior party leader Yashwant Sinha had the stature to become the next CM of Jharkhand.
Shatrughan Sinha had yesterday called on the former external affairs minister, who is in judicial custody following his arrest on June 2 in connection with an assault case.
Mr Munda, however, claimed, "There is no doubt that the next CM of Jharkhand will be from BJP following the landslide victory in the recent Lok Sabha elections."
