Harish Rawat, who is tipped to be appointed as the new Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, on Saturday arrived in Dehradun to a resounding reception by his supporters amid beating of drums and presentation of Kumaoni folk dances.
Though his appointment as the new Chief Minister is being considered almost final, a formal announcement in this regard will be made after a meeting of the CLP which is scheduled to begin shortly at the Bijapur state guest house in the presence of central observers.
Congress co-incharge for Uttarakhand Sanjay Kapoor said Ambika Soni, Janaradhan Dwivedi and Ghulam Nabi Azad will be in Dehradun as central observers to preside over a meeting of the CLP to finalise the name of the new Chief Minister.
The new chief minister and his cabinet will be sworn in at the Raj Bhawan at 3:15 PM on Saturday which will be followed by a meeting at the Parade Ground where the new chief minister is likely to address the people of the state and party workers.
Vijay Bahuguna had on Friday resigned as Uttarakhand Chief Minister.
