BJP senior minister Prakash Jawadekar has indirectly hinted that the BJP will not project a CM candidate for Delhi. His comment that Prime Minister Modi will take on Kejriwal is being interpreted as a confirmation that the BJP is not going to project a CM candidate. In fact, BJP's experience with projecting CMs in Delhi has been disastrous. In the last elections, it projected Kiran Bedi, but the party could win only three seats. Earlier too, the BJP had once projected Sushma Swaraj. In fact, she was made a CM barely six months before the elections and she failed to lead the party to victory. In 2008, it projected VK Malhotra dn in 2013, Harshavardhan were projected and both had failed.
Interestingly, even the Congress is fighting shy of projected a CM candidate. Though senior leader Ajay Maken is spearheading the Congress Party's campaign, the party has not announced him as a candidate. So, it's advantage for Arvind Kejriwal in Delhi.
