26 December, 2017, 01:47
After the embarrassment of having its chief ministerial candidate and its state party chief lose the race, the BJP has made up some ground in Himachal Pradesh by choosing Jairam Thakur to be the next Chief Minister of the state.
Jairam Thakur, who will become Himachal Pradesh chief minister, in Shimla on Sunday.
However his new government would not allow to further burden the state economy. Today while addressing a press conference, Thakur thanked his party's leaders after accepting his new position. Thakur's name was supported by Union Minister JP Nadda and former Himachal CM Shanta Kumar. Since Jai Ram is only 52 years old, he will be able to lead BJP in the state for long.
The BJP's central observer Narendra Singh Tomar announced Thakur's name after a meeting of BJPMLAs was convened, with all unanimously deciding in his favour.
Union minister JPNadda was also considered a top contender for the post. He also promised to leave "no stone unturned" to meet the expectations of the Himachal's people.
Jai Ram Thakur was Born in 1965 and comes from Tandi in Mandi district. He had won his first assembly election in 1998 from Mandi.
Seen largely as a low-profile leader, Thakur is from a farming family in Mandi.
The Chief Minister-elect, known for his proximity to Nadda, did his graduation from a Mandi college and post-graduation from Panjab University in Chandigarh.
At 28 years of age, he contested the 1993 Assembly polls from Seraj on a BJP ticket and lost.
The BJP wrested power in Himachal from the Congress, winning close to a two thirds majority with 44 seats in the 68-member Assembly.
Thakur, who had headed the state unit of the party between 2006 and 2009, a period during which there was strong infighting in the BJP, would once again have to contend with more than a few sullen faces within.
