Five-time legislator Jairam Thakur on Wednesday took oath as the 14th chief minister of Himachal Pradesh in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah.

In the recently concluded state polls, the BJP managed to win on 44 seats, gaining absolute majority to form government in the state. The 52-year-old will be the 13th chief minister of the hill state.

"Thakur was elected BJP Legislature Party leader in the (Himachal Pradesh) Assembly", Tomar told reporters, adding that "no proposal was made for any other candidate".

Announcing Thakur's elections as the next chief minister, Tomar said it was 73-year-old Dhumal who had proposed his name at the meeting and it was supported by all those present.

The newly-elected chief minister will be sworn in on December 27 in Shimla.

Holder Third Point LLC Raised Vulcan Matls Co (VMC) Position
The North Carolina-based Chapter Iv Investors Limited Liability Corp has invested 12.45% in Vulcan Materials Company (NYSE:VMC). Steve Cohen increased its stake in Vulcan Matls Co (VMC) by 116.47% based on its latest 2017Q3 regulatory filing with the SEC.

"People have shown faith in us, will try to meet their expectations", Mr Thakur said this morning.

Thakur also accused the previous Congress government of failing to implement Central-sponsored schemes in the state "due to which state could not get desired benefits". Himachal's chief ministers and political leaders mostly belong to or hail from Shimla, Kangra and Sirmour.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP President Amit Shah, and other prominent party leaders are expected to attend the ceremony.

Thakur and Dhumal had a closed-door meeting before the central observers arrived in Shimla on Thursday. That Dhumal lost itself makes for an intriguing tale and the buzz is that he was persuaded by the party not to contest from his home constituency of Hamirpur because he no longer figures in the BJP scheme of things.

While supporters called for his appointment, Dhumal himself said he was out of the race on Saturday. He is from a humble background, his father having worked as a mason. That would makes Thakur the first chief minister from the politically sensitive belt of Mandi, where the BJP won 9 out of ten seats. Thakur, who has an MA in English literature, is married to Sadhna Singh, a doctor, and the couple has two daughters.
