Tirath Singh Rawat to be new CM of Uttarakhand


Tirath Singh Rawat, Lok Sabha MP from Garhwal, is set to become the new CM of Uttarakhand. His name was announced by former CM Trivendra Singh Rawat, who resigned from the post on Tuesday evening.
He will take oath at 4 pm in the evening.
Rawat was chosen as the successor to CM Trivendra Singh Rawat during BJP’s legislative party meeting earlier today. As soon as the name of Tirath Rawat was confirmed, Union Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal gave him a bouquet and welcomed him.
It is being said that he was the first choice for the position and is a close aid of former Chief Minister and current cabinet minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank.
It may be called that Trivendra returned to Dehradun on Tuesday after meeting the BJP central leadership in Delhi and reached the Raj Bhavan at 4 pm to meet Governor Baby Rani Maurya and submitted his resignation. Accepting Rawat’s resignation, the Governor asked him to hold the responsibilities of the post till the new Chief Minister of the state is elected.
Rawat, after resigning on Tuesday, said “The party has collectively decided that now someone else should get this opportunity. My four-year term is only nine days short of completion.” When asked about the reason behind his resignation, Rawat said, “This is a collective decision of the party, you have to go to Delhi to get a good answer.” Rawat also wished his successor and said, “Now, whoever will be given the responsibility tomorrow, he will discharge it. I wish him all the best.”
