The Bharatiya Janata Party's parliamentary meeting with all its MPs has begun. The meeting comes after winning in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh elections. All elected lawmakers will be present at the parliamentary meet. One of the chief agendas to be picked up in this meeting is the Chief Ministerial faces of Gujarat and Himachal. The BJP swept Himachal Pradesh, snatching it from the Congress and taking the total of states where it is in power to 16. With 44 seats, it has won almost a two-thirds majority in the 68-member Himachal assembly, but awkwardly, its presumptive chief minister PK Dhumal lost his election. Meanwhile in Gujarat, the BJP - which managed to retain power for a record sixth time - is mulling a course correction after losing several seats to arch-rivals Congress. The new BJP government in Gujarat is likely to be sworn in on December 25.
