BJP Lok Sabha member from Jabalpur Rakesh Singh is likely to be named as the new Madhya Pradesh party chief, informed sources said on Wednesday.
The decision was made keeping in mind the assembly polls slated for later in 2018.
Singh will replace Nand Kumar Singh Chauhan, who stepped down late on Tuesday.
The other names discussed were ministers Bhupendra Singh, Narottam Mishra, Rajendra Shukla and General Secretary V.D. Sharma.
An official announcement is expected later in the day.
