"The party has never projected anybody as the chief- ministerial candidate in the past elections and in the coming polls also it will not do so," General Secretary Gopinath Munde [ Images ] told mediapersons at the State BJP office in Bhopal.
"Neither BJP nor Shiv Sena will project anyone as the chief-ministerial candidate and the issue will be sort out after the elections," Munde said.
The party will have a truck with Shiv Sena in Maharashtra, but not ally with Raj Thackeray's [ Images ] Maharashtra Navnirman Sena, he clarified.
When asked about Rahul Mahajan [ Images ], he said the doors of the BJP are open for him, but he could join the party only after settlement of court cases against him.
To a query on Praveen Mahajan's proposed book, he said that he will comment on it only after it's release.
Referring to Kasab's [ Images ] confession, he said that at this stage it is difficult for anyone to guess the motive behind it but said it was the most deadly attack since independence which could also be a strategic conspiracy against the nation.
"Despite this, the Centre was unable to decide for quite a long time that which agency should probe the attack, CBI, Maharashtra Police or the Railway Police," he said, criticising the Central government on the issue.
