Following a landslide victory in Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is yet to announce the Chief Minister candidate of the state.

Hours after the party's parliamentary board's meet on Thursday, the BJP said the state CM's candidate will be announced on Saturday, according to reports.

There has been a delay in the formation of government in Uttar Pradesh as they are looking closely into the consensus of all MLAs before deciding on the UP CM, the board said.
