BJP has managed to hold full majority across Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh. These elections have marked a historic win for Bharatiya Janta Party. After the series of controversies, finally, the saffron flag managed to set their development mandate in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh. However, somehow Himachal Pradesh election results are the drawback for BJP as the Chief Ministerial candidate of the party, Prem Kumar Dhumal has lost his seat from Sujanpur. And now, the BJP party is seeking to choose another candidate for the Chief Minister post in Himachal Pradesh. BJP’s Chief Ministerial candidate Prem Kumar Dhumal faced an embarrassing defeat from the Congress Rajinder Rana.
In Himachal Pradesh, the saffron colour party has won 44 seats out of 68 while the Congress party managed to grab just 21 seats. The Bharatiya Janata Party with its development agenda has captured the Congress ruling state Himachal Pradesh because of the anti-incumbency factor. Therefore, now the BJP will be deciding to set the chief ministerial candidate for Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat. However, before the elections, both the powers of India have fielded the face for the Himachal Pradesh elections. On one side the Congress party decided to field Virbadhra Singh who’s accused of some corruption charges. Whereas, the BJP has fielded Prem Kumar Dhumal who have faced embarrassing defeat from his seat in Sujanpur.
Now, the reports are coming that BJP is planning to choose Jairam Thakur for the next chief ministerial candidate of Himachal Pradesh. He is the newly elected BJP MLA who expressed his happiness over the BJP’s victory in Himachal Pradesh. Also, in the press conference, he said that “he will follow the decision taken by the central leadership of the party. He said whatever the party will decide I will do.” The new face for the Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh, Jairam Thakur has also thanked people for their support.
