After the sudden resignation Of Tirath Singh Rawat as the Chief Minister which put Uttrakhand in political turmoil , the BJP after the legislature party meeting named Two time MLA from Kumaon region (Khatima constituency) Pushkar Singh Dhami as the next chief Minister. Dhami was elected BJP Legislature party leader reported ANI
Shortly after he was named Chief Minister Dhami told ANI, My party has appointed a common worker, son of an ex-serviceman, who was born in Pithoragarh to serve the state. We’ll work together for people’s welfare. We accept the challenge of serving people with the help of others, in a short time span.
Reacting to the change of guard , former Congress Chief Minister Harish Rawat tweeted, Tirath Singh Rawat’s resignation as Uttarakhand Chief Minister due to constitutional compulsion and byelections cannot be held in the state due to Covid is the biggest lie. “What can be a bigger lie than this that byelections cannot be held in Uttarakhand due to COVID and the chief minister is resigning due to constitutional compulsion. The reality is that byelections have been held before in the same COVID period. The byelection has been held in Salt (an assembly constituency in Uttarakhand). The chief minister could have contested from there also.”
इससे बड़ा झूठ क्या हो सकता है कि कोरोना संक्रमण की वजह से #उत्तराखंड में उपचुनाव नहीं हो सकते और संवैधानिक बाध्यता के कारण #मुख्यमंत्री इस्तीफा दे रहे हैं। वास्तविकता यह है कि उसी कोरोना काल में पहले भी उपचुनाव हुये हैं, सल्ट का उपचुनाव हुआ है और मुख्यमंत्री जी
