Late at night, 72-year-old Kamal Nath was declared the party choice for Chief Minister at a meeting of Congress legislators in Bhopal.
Kamal Nath will call on Governor Anandiben Patel Friday to formally stake claim to government formation.
Speaking about the same, he said, “For me, this post is a milestone… We shall work together to fulfil promises made in our manifesto. I had no demands. I have worked all my life without hankering for any post. I have worked with Sanjay Gandhi, Indiraji, Rajivji and now Rahul Gandhi.”
