Pushkar Singh Dhami has been named as the next chief minister of Uttarakhand, following a critical legislature meeting conducted at the state headquarters in Dehradun by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
The 45-year-old Dhami, a two-time MLA from Khatima, took over on Sunday as the new chief minister of Uttarakhand which has few months to go for the next assembly polls early next year.
At 45, Dhami takes over as the youngest chief minister of Uttarakhand.

Within party lines, however, reports suggest that some may not be happy with the appointment of Dhami as CM.
The youngest to ever become Uttarakhand CM, the 45-year-old Dhami has roots in RSS and ABVP
