Senior BJP leader Brijmohan Agarwal on Sunday said that the party leadership in Centre will decide upon the chief ministerial candidate for Chattisgarh if the BJP is voted to power again. 

"We can't take a decision on this. Central leadership will take a decision. Whatever they decide will be abided by," the minister added. 

Meanwhile, Congress yesterday also exuded confidence, claiming that the party will not look left or right for support, it will form the government in the state independently. 

'I am confident of victory. We are getting a clear majority. There is no need to look left or right (for any support or post-poll alliance),' senior Congress leader T S Singh Deo told PTI. 

Elections in Chhattisgarh were held in two phase on November 12 and 20. Votes will be counted on December 11.
