Central parliamentry committee will take final decision on candidates for assembly elections in 2017.

No CM Candidate before election : BJP

BJP is looking to go with same formula as they did in previous elections like Maharashtra, Assam, Haryana and Jharkhand etc. where CM was elected after election.
JP Nadda & Prof. Prem Kumar Dhumal are main contenders for Chief minister candidate post of BJP. So BJP is not in mood to give chance of infighting.
Nadda remains Shah’s favorite for the CM’s post, but party’s leadership fear that the transition may not be as smooth as they want it to be.
Prem Kumar Dhumal & his son Anurag Thakur are main competitor of Jagat Prakash Nadda in state for Chief ministerial candidate post.
