Shimla: The state unit of the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday, named its former chief and MLA from Seraj constituency, Jai Ram Thakur as next Chief Minister of the Himachal Pradesh.
Most of the newly-elected BJP MLAs backed Mr Thakur's name for the top post in the legislature party meeting held in Shimla in the presence of party's Central observers - Union ministers Nirmala Sitharaman and Narendra Singh Tomar.
However his new government would not allow to further burden the state economy. Since along with Thakur and Dhumal, four-time MLAs Suresh Bharadwaj and Mahender Singh had also expressed their desire to be considered for the top post, the party made them formally propose Thakur's name at the meeting.
"I thank everyone, central leadership, Prem Kumar Dhumal who proposed my name (which was) supported by JP Nadda and Shanta Kumar", Thakur said after the announcement.

He also promised to leave "no stone unturned" to meet the expectations of the Himachal's people.
