NEW DELHI: The BJP on Tuesday named Prem Kumar Dhumal as the party’s chief ministerial face for the upcoming assembly elections in Himachal Pradesh.

Party chief Amit Shah made the announcement at a public meeting, thus ending speculation over the party’s choice for the top post.

“The BJP is going to fight the Himachal Pradesh assembly polls under the leadership of Prem Kumar Dhumal…Dhumal is currently a former CM but after December 18, he will be the new chief minister of the state,” PTI quoted Shah as saying.

The former Himachal Pradesh chief minister will lead the BJP to a “huge majority” in the state, Shah said.

It was reported that Union minister JP Nadda was in the running for the post, but Dhumal’s mass connect in the hill state may have tipped the scale in his favour.

The BJP had on October 22 unveiled its list of 40 star campaigners in the state, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Shah and 10 Union ministers.

The list submitted to the Election Commission also includes the names of four serving chief ministers – Uttar Pradesh’s Yogi Adityanath, Madhya Pradesh’s Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Haryana’s Manohar Lal Khattar, and Uttarakhand’s Trivendra Singh Rawat.

Meanwhile, the ruling Congress had announced that it will contest the polls in the state under the leadership of incumbent chief minister Virbhadra Singh, who is also the chairman of the party’s campaign committee.

The Assembly poll in the state is scheduled for November 9; results will be declared on December 18.
