Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur on Sunday said it was but obvious that the CM would be from Mandi as people had completely wiped Congress from the district in 2017 Assembly polls.
“Mandi missed the mark in the past, right from the time of Thakur Karam Singh and Sukh Ram,” he said, while addressing a public meeting at Jogindernagar in Mandi.
Thakur said it was a mystery after poll results as to who would be the Chief Minister and the ball was finally in the court of BJP high command.
“I am grateful to Prime Minister, Narendra Modi who even fixed the date of my oath ceremony and later joined us along with his cabinet colleagues and senior Union and state leaders,” he said.
The CM said no one during last four years could raise fingers on the working of Prime Minister.
“For the very reason, the BJP will rule the country for many more years in times to come and so in Himachal Pradesh,” he said.
