New Delhi: Madhya Pradesh Congress chief Kamal Nath, who is expected to be the next chief minister of the state, left for Bhopal on Thursday evening after meeting party president Rahul Gandhi in Delhi.

"I am leaving for Bhopal. A meeting of MLAs will be held and you will get to know the decision after that," Kamal Nath told reporters outside Rahul's residence.

Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia, the other contender for the post who also met Rahul, said the decision will be announced on Thursday night.

"It is not a race, it is not about kursi. We are here to serve the people of Madhya Pradesh. I am leaving for Bhopal and you will get to know the decision today," he said.

After the meeting, Rahul posted his picture with Nath and Scindia.

"The two most powerful warriors are patience and time: Leo Tolstoy," Rahul said in the accompanying tweet.
