New Delhi: Following the resignation of Tirath Singh Rawat from the post of Chief Minister of Uttarakhand on Friday, the BJP leadership is now making every effort to appoint a new CM.
After facing ‘constitutional problem’ in electing Rawat in assembly bielection, Rawat who is an MP, decided to resign from CM’s post creating trouble for the BJP to elect a new CM.
For finding solution and selecting new CM, Union Agriculture Minister, Narendra Singh Tomar has rushed to Dehradun where he plans to meet party leaders.
Since bielection is not scheduled, the BJP top leadership now has no choice but to select any BJP legislator for the CM post.

Tirath Singh Rawat enjoyed the post of CM only for about four months. During his tenure he allowed Kubha mela to be held during Covid pandemic, which was believed to have become a super spreader of Covid in the hilly state.
Meanwhile Congress has accused the BJP of pushing Uttarakhand into a ‘political instability’.
In a statement, Randeep Surjewala, the Congress spokesperson said that not only the BJP has brought political turmoil in the State but has also allowed its leaders to openly loot the State’s natural resources
