Speaking to News18, CM-designate Dhami said the government would fulfil the promises made to the people of Uttarakhand.

BJP had contested the elections under Dhami’s leadership in Uttarakhand and won 47 out of 70 seats. This was the first time in the state that a party got elected for the second consecutive term.
