Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party president Amit Shah will be in Dehradun this evening to witness swearing-in ceremony of senior party functionary Trivendra Singh Rawat as Chief Minister, scheduled at 3 pm.

Rawat will be administered oath of office and secrecy by Governor Krishna Kant Paul at the Parade Ground at 3 p.m. He will succeed Congress leader Harish Rawat to become the eighth Chief Minister of the hill state.

Trivendra Singh Rawat was unanimously elected as the leader of BJP legislative party on Friday. Rawat, a former Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh(RSS) Pracharak assured that he would provide a corruption free government to Uttarakhand and work for the uplift of the poor.

As BJP loyalist, Rawat had guided the saffron party to electoral victory in Jharkhand assembly elections in 2014. In the recently concluded assembly polls, the BJP won with a clear majority with 57 seats in the 70 member Uttarakhand Assembly, thereby ousting the Congress that managed to win just 11 seats this time.
