As BJP’s chief ministerial candidate for Himachal Pradesh, Prem Kumar Dhumal loses Sujanpur constituency, the question on everyone’s mind is who will the BJP pick as chief minister of Himachal Pradesh?
However as told by health minister JP Nadda,” FM Arun Jaitley and General Secy of the party Saroj Pandey will go as observers to Gujarat & discuss about the leadership in the state. Similarly Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Narendra Tomar will go to Himachal Pradesh to discuss about the leadership there.”
Jai Ram Thakur, a four-time winner from Seraj constituency in Mandi district, may be the party’s pick. Jai Ram, who has a strong RSS background, was also a minister in last BJP government.
Before Dhumal was announced by the party as CM candidate — just nine days ahead of the polls — several names were doing the rounds including Union Health Minister JP Nadda and RSS Parcharak Ajay Jamwal. So, who will it be? We’ll have to wait and find out.
