Uttar Pradesh BJP chief Keshav Prasad Maurya has been admitted to Ram Manohar Lohiya (RML) hospital on Thursday after complaining of chest pain and low blood pressure.

Maurya is kept in ICU and is to remain under observation for the day, according to the reports.

Maurya is the front-runner for the chief ministerial post in Uttar Pradesh where the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won a landslide victory of 325 out of 403 Assembly seats in the state. 

The party’s top leaders met at the parliamentary board on Thursday to decide on the state CM post. However, the decision to announce the name of the candidate was postponed for the next week.
