The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Parliamentary Board will meet in New Delhi on Sunday to decide the chief ministers of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, where it won majority. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to attend the meeting after his victory rally in the capital. Both Amit Shah and PM Modi addressed party workers in the rally, which started at Le Meredien and ended at the BJP headquaters in New Delhi.

Party president Amit Shah on Sunday said that the chief ministers will be selected based on their merits and capability.

The BJP registered a historic win of almost 80 per cent by scoring 312 seats out of 403 seats in Uttar Pradesh by any political party since Indira Gandhi led the Congress to 309 seats in 1980 while in Uttarakhand, the BJP scored 57 seats in the 70-member Assembly.
