A day ahead of the swearing-in ceremony, Uttarakhand CM-designate Trivendra Singh Rawat on Friday met state Governor KK Paul and claimed support of 57 MLAs to form government.

Rawat was on Friday elected the leader of the BJP Legislature Party and along with BJP MLAs and senior leaders, he reached Raj Bhavan to stake claim to form government in the state.

"PM Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah will attend the swearing-in ceremony on Saturday," BJP Uttarakhand state in-charge Shyam Jaju was quoted as saying by a news portal.

Reports suggested that the oath-taking event will be held at 3 pm on Saturday.

Rawat, an organisational man of the BJP and party in-charge in Jharkhand, won Doiwala seat by defeating Congress' Hira Singh Bisht by over 24,000 votes.
