Pushkar Singh Dhami elected as new Uttarakhand CM

Dehradun: Pushkar Singh Dhami has been elected as the new Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, giving a new twist to the political scenario of the state.

Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat handed over his resignation letter to his party Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday, barely four months after he took charge of the post.

The resignation comes ahead of the Assembly polls next year in the state.

Rawat was sworn in as Chief Minister in March after a fierce dissent against then Chief Minister Trivendra Rawat.

Rawat's brief stint as the CM was too marred with controversies. The BJP's Uttarakhand leaders had complained to the Delhi leadership about public anger at some of his pronouncements.
