Dhami To Take Oath As Uttarakhand CM Today, Modi & Amit Shah To Attend Ceremony

Pushkar Singh Dhami

Dehradun: Pushkar Singh Dhami will be taking oath On March 23 as the Chief Minister Of Uttarakhand, for a second term. A grand ceremony will be held at the Parade Ground in Dehradun in the presence of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) top brass, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Minister Amit Shah. The ceremony is scheduled to take place at 2:30 PM.

Apart from Modi and Shah, the oath-taking ceremony will be attended by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, BJP president JP Nadda, Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and Dhami’s Himachal Pradesh counterpart Jai Ram Thakur.

After retaining Pushkar Singh Dhami as the chief minister, the BJP has now moved on to the next job at hand, cabinet formation in Uttarakhand.

At least three new inductions are likely to be expected in Dhami’s new cabinet. The need arises as Harak Singh Rawat and Yashpal Arya, who were members of the last cabinet, joined the Congress ahead of the Assembly polls and former minister Swami Yatishwaranand lost his seat. Party needs three new faces to fill the slots that were occupied by them.

Former chief minister Vijay Bahuguna’s son and Sitarganj MLA Saurav Bahugua, former chief minister Bhuvan Chandra Khanduri’s daughter and Kotdwar MLA Ritu Khanduri Bhushan and Dilip Singh Rawat, who scored an emphatic win over Harak Singh Rawat’s daughter-in-law, Anukriti Gusain, in Lansdowne, are likely to fill up the slots.

If inducted into Dhami’s new cabinet, all three of them will make their debut as ministers.

Old faces likely to be retained are Satpal Maharaj, Dhan Singh Rawat, Rekha Arya and Arvind Pandey, who were all members of Dhami’s last cabinet.
