Chhattisgarh has announced the appointment of a new Chief Minister. Vishnu Deo Sai was chosen by the BJP to succeed Chhattisgarh’s current chief minister.
The party’s members have agreed to choose a prominent tribal leader to be the state’s next chief minister. At the Sunday BJP Legislative Party meeting, this decision was made. The leader, who is 59 years old, was born on February 21, 1964. The BJP has swept Kunkuri in north Chhattisgarh, where Sai won the recently held assembly elections.
Sai, a well-known member of the BJP, has served in a number of capacities, most notably as a former union minister and state chief. Sai is a member of the powerful Sahu (Teli) community, which is well-represented in the divisions of Durg, Raipur, and Bilaspur.
On becoming the new Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh, Vishnu Deo Sai says “I have been unanimously chosen as the leader of the legislative assembly. I am thankful to PM Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP National President JP Nadda for showing trust in me.”
Hours after he was announced as the CM-designate, Vishnu Deo Sai met Chhattisgarh Governor Biswabhusan Harichandan and staked a claim to form the government in the state.
