The Bharatiya Janata Party, which brought a thumping majority in the 2017 assembly elections, is going to give the state the third chief minister in 5 years. Although there are many names in this race, but one name is surprising everyone. The name of Ritu Khanduri, the daughter of former Chief Minister BC Khanduri and MLA from Yamkeshwar, is also in the news.
These names are also being discussed
After the resignation of Trivendra Singh Rawat, Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat also submitted his resignation to the Governor on Friday after a tenure of 3 months and 22 days in view of the constitutional crisis. Now one of the sitting MLA is going to become the Chief Minister. It is being speculated that this time the Minister of State Dhan Singh Rawat or cabinet minister Bishan Singh Chufal may get this important responsibility.
According to information received from the sources, the name of Bishan Singh Chufal, a five-time MLA from Didihat assembly, is going ahead. Bishan Singh Chufal became a cabinet minister this year and is known for his impeccable image. On the other hand, the name of the Minister of State for Independent Charge Dr. Dhan Singh Rawat is also in the news. Dr. Dhan Singh Rawat contested and won for the first time from Srinagar seat of Pauri Garhwal.
After winning the victory, Dhan Singh Rawat was also given the responsibility of Minister of State with independent charge. It is said that Dhan Singh Rawat’s hold in the organization is very strong. Even after the resignation of Trivendra Singh Rawat, the name of Dr. Dhan Singh Rawat was running in the forefront.
Women Chief Minister can also be stamped
Along with all this, the name of Ritu Khanduri, daughter of former Chief Minister BC Khanduri and MLA from Yamkeshwar, is also in discussion. It is believed that the woman candidate Ritu Khanduri can be entrusted with the responsibility of the state chief as a compensation for the political loss that the Bharatiya Janata Party is expected to suffer after changing two chief ministers in five years. Apart from this, the name of MLA from Khatima Pushkar Dhami is also in the race for the post of CM.
