Uttarakhand CM Khandori asked to resignJune 23rd, 2009 - 5:42 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, June 23 (ANI): After party’s rout in the Lok Sabha elections in Uttarakhand, the BJP leadership is understood to have asked Chief Minister B C Khanduri to resign.
According to party sources, the BJP decided to replace Khanduri after a meeting of senior leaders at L K Advani’s residence.
The meeting was attended by party President Rajnath Singh.
Meanwhile, the party high command has also summoned all its 35 MLAs from the state to Delhi for deciding on a replacement to Khanduri.
The names of state Minister for Tourism and Parliamentary Affairs Prakash Pant and Health Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal are doing the rounds as possible front-runners to replace Khanduri.
The BJP in Uttarakhand has been in turmoil after it lost all five Lok Sabha seats in the state and dissidents led by senior leader B S Koshiyari landed in Delhi to press for Khanduri’s removal.
Koshiyari even resigned his Rajya Sabha seat, but took back his letter a day later. (ANI)
