Jaipur, Rajasthan: In a significant development, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has named Bhajanlal Sharma, the Sanganer MLA, as the new Chief Minister of Rajasthan. This decision follows a meeting of BJP leaders in the state.
The announcement of Bhajanlal Sharma as the new Chief Minister was made after a meeting of party leaders in Rajasthan. The BJP legislature party meeting took place in Jaipur to finalize the appointment of the new chief minister.
The meeting occurred at the BJP office and included three central observers: Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Vinod Tawde, and Saroj Pandey. The chief ministerial candidate will be elected as the leader of the legislature party, a position that follows the BJP’s recent success in the state assembly elections.
Bhajan Lal Sharma, a first-time MLA from the Sanganer assembly constituency, has emerged as a significant figure in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Rajasthan. Known for his close association with the party’s ideological mentor RSS and its chief JP Nadda, Sharma has played a crucial role in the BJP’s organizational structure in the state. In the 2023 Rajasthan assembly elections, he secured a decisive victory, defeating the Indian National Congress candidate Pushpendra Bhardwaj by an impressive margin of over 48,000 votes.
The selection of Bhajanlal Sharma signals a key political development in Rajasthan, and further details about the decision are expected to be revealed soon.
