Dhami said he had always wanted Rawat to contest the election from a seat which is located in the hills. “Now I would request CM Rawat to contest the election from Dharchula,” Dhami said. Later, speaker of the Assembly Govind Singh Kunjawal confirmed Dhami’s resignation had been accepted. Rawat became Uttarakhand CM on February 9.
