Jairam Thakur appointed as Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister

Jairam Thakur appointed as Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister”

"The swearing-in ceremony will be held of December 27".

A decision on his name was taken unanimously at the Bharatiya Janata Party Legislative Party meeting here, where central observers - Union Ministers Nirmala Sitharaman and Narendra Singh Tomar - were present along with Union Health Minister J.P. Nadda and state party incharge Mangal Pandey.

The BJP veteran and Margdarshak Mandal member, Shanta Kumar, who is a Lok Sabha MP from Kangra, had apparently put his foot down saying that the CM must be chosen from among the party MLAs.

Though Mr Nadda's name was also doing the rounds for the top post, the saffron cadre and senior state leaders were in favour of picking the new chief minister from among the newly-elected MLAs.

While supporters called for his appointment, Dhumal himself said he was out of the race on Saturday.

Prince Harry has forged a strong bond with Mr Obama over the years, particularly through his work with servicemen and his royal trips to the US.

This development took place at the party legislature meeting today.

The 52-year-old had earlier been the party's state unit chief and a minister in a government headed by Dhumal.

"We will try to meet the expectations of the people of Himachal Pradesh". BJP won 44 seats out of 68 constituencies. Right from the beginning, he was considered a strong contender for the post along with Nadda, especially since Dhumal's loss had created a situation where still giving him the job would have meant another by-election in the state.

Deliberations between central observers and newly-elected MLAs failed to reach a consensus, prompting the high command to intervene and decide on Thakur. The party's initial choice for CM, Dhumal lost Sujanpur to his once-protege Rajinder Rana of the Congress.

Therefore, after the results came, it was always a direct fight between Dhumal and Thakur for the post.

The BJP took nearly a week to decide on the Chief Minister after its chief ministerial candidate Dhumal lost the election.
