"See, I am not aware of this news and even if it is going to happen, it will be decided by Modi-ji and the central party leadership, he said."
New Delhi, May 19 - BJP's Delhi unit chief Harsh Vardhan, who is among the seven newly-elected BJP MPs from the capital, is likely to become the health minister, party sources indicated Sunday.

Harsh Vardhan, who is considered to be close to prime ministerial nominee Narendra Modi as well as the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS), is the front runner for the job, the source said.

However, Harsh Vardhan, who was also the party's chief ministerial candidate ahead of the Delhi assembly elections in December last year, expressed his ignorance about the news.

See, I am not aware of this news and even if it is going to happen, it will be decided by Modi-ji and the central party leadership, he said.

Harsh Vardhan is credited with a successful campaign to immunize children against polio in Delhi when he was the health minister in the BJP government.
