Jai Ram Thakur Selected As Himachal CM, Has Strong RSS Links

Jai Ram Thakur 5 lesser known things about the new Himachal Pradesh CM

The people in Mandi were confident this time that they would get the first ever Chief Minister from this district since they had given such a lead to the party.

Thakur is set to take oath on December 27.

Thakur at 52 joins other second rung party leaders like Devendra Fadnavis (47), Yogi Adityanath (45), Trivendra Singh Rawat (57), Raghubar Das (62), and Manohar Lal Khattar (62), who were elevated as chief minister of their states after the BJP fought assembly polls without projecting a candidate for the top job. The father-son duo after being publicly humiliated by Congress Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh had a large role in wiping out the party from the district.

The swearing-in ceremony at the historic Ridge saw the presence of Union Ministers Rajnath Singh, J.P. Nadda and Nitin Gadkari, besides the Chief Ministers of various BJP-ruled states in attendance, along with more than 30,000 party supporters from across the state, mostly dressed in traditional attire.

Former BJP state unit president and five-time MLA Jairam Thakur was on Sunday chosen as the next chief minister of Himachal Pradesh by newly-elected party MLAs in Shimla.

The BJP took nearly a week to decide on the Chief Minister candidate after after its Chief Ministerial candidate Prem Kumar Dhumal lost his election.

He was referring to Uttar Pradesh where the BJP was the preeminent party for much of 90s faded to political irrelevance for over a decade till it notched up unprecedented victories in 2014 Lok Sabha poll and then in 2017 assembly elections under Modi and Shah.

Thakur had lobbied hard for the chief minister's post and it is said that as it appeared that Dhumal may not win, he headed straight to Delhi to stake his claim. This was a clear sign that BJP was not keen on sending its central leaders or ministers to the states as CM.

Dr. Rajeev Bindal is to be made Speaker.

Jairam Thakur will be sworn-in as the chief minister of Himachal Pradesh on Wednesday.

Byrd died Friday night, police said. "My auntie has to bury her son", Shaveontae King, Byrd's cousin, told the Blade . The four teens, ages 13 and 14, were allegedly seen leaving the area of the overpass after the incident, police said.

He won his fifth consecutive assembly election from Seraj, earlier known as Chirchot, in Mandi district, defeating Chet Ram of the Congress.

A decision on Thakur's name was taken unanimously on December 24 at the BJP Legislative Party meeting here, where central observers - Union Ministers Nirmala Sitharaman and Narendra Singh Tomar - were present. He studied in the village school and later did his graduation in Mandi and Masters from Panjab University in Chandigarh. Several names were doing the rounds for the past few days, including those of Nadda, Suresh Bharadwaj, Dhumal and Thakur. This ended almost a week of suspense and tussle within the party for the top post since former chief minister Prem Kumar Dhumal - who was named by the party as its CM's face before the polls - failed to win his own election from Sujanpur.

The BJP wrested power in Himachal Pradesh from the Congress, winning close to two-thirds majority with 44 seats in the 68-member assembly while the Congress was decimated to 21 seats.

Outgoing Congress Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh and his erstwhile cabinet colleagues were conspicuously absent from the ceremony.
