Pokhriyal likely to be projected as CM candidate in Uttarakhand
Dehradun: After a successful experiment in Assam, The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leadership has decided to project chief ministerial candidates in next Assembly Elections in Uttarakhand also. The party has zeroed in on the name of former Uttarakhand chief minister Ramesh Chandra Pokhariyal.
According to inside information available with newztrack.com, the BJP in all probability, may project Pokhariyal as the Chief Ministerial candidate in the next Assembly elections in 2017.
It is gathered that Pokhariyal recently met senior party leaders in New Delhi sounding disgruntled over the neglect he faced from his party in the wake of recent political development involving Chief Minister Harish Rawat in the state.
According to sources, the party assured him of due place and promised to make him CM candidate in Uttarakhand.
In fact, the project of CM candidate in Assam was a departure from saffron party’s policy of not projecting any leader for the CMs post but as the report suggests it might do it in the coming elections in Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh.
Pokhriyal was earlier the Chief Minister of Hill state and was removed following allegations of corruption.
