After the BJP won a huge mandate and returned to power, there is still uncertainty over who the high command of the party will select as its chief ministerial candidate for Rajasthan

On Wednesday night, former chief minister and stalwart leader Vasundhara Raje arrived in the national capital.

Raje, who won a new term in the Assembly from the Jhalrapatan assembly constituency, told reporters as she arrived in the nation's capital at the airport, "I have come to visit my daughter-in-law."

The BJP has not yet chosen its chief ministerial candidate for the state of Rajasthan, which it took from the Congress after winning 115 of the 199 seats up for election on November 25.

Vasundhara Raje, a two-time chief minister of the state; Diya Kumari, who has been elected MLA from Vidyadhar Nagar; Mahat Balak Nath, who won from the Tijara constituency; and Rajyavarardhan Singh Rathore, who won from the Jhotwara constituency, are among the top contenders for the post of chief minister in the state.

The BJP swept the Hindi heartland on the counting day for four states that polled for their assemblies last month.

The BJP, with its stunning mandates in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan, stumped not just their rivals but also some pollsters who had predicted tight races in these states.
