Champawat MLA set to resign on Thursday, vacate seat for Uttarakhand CM

  • | Wednesday | 20th April, 2022

Dehradun, Apr 20 (PTI) BJP MLA Kailash Chandra Gahtori will resign from his Champawat seat on Thursday, paving the way for Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami to contest an assembly by-election from there, party sources said. Although the BJP won the recent Uttarakhand Assembly elections, Dhami himself failed to win from his Khatima constituency. He needs to become a member of the state assembly within six months to continue as the chief minister. Gahtori, who is currently in Delhi, will submit his resignation to Uttarakhand Assembly Speaker Ritu Khanduri at the Vidhan Sabha here on Thursday, the sources said. Gahotri had offered to vacate his seat for Dhami soon after he was sworn in as chief minister. "It will be an honour for me if the chief minister contests from Champawat", Gahtori had said earlier.
