The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader SS Kaler has resigned from his position as the state head of the party to contest the election against the chief minister Pushkar Singh Dhami in the state assembly elections next year.
Kaler who also belongs to the Khatima constituency of Udham Singh Nagar like Dhami stated during a Press conference on Tuesday that he wants to focus on his own constituency to contest the election against the CM next year from Khatima. He said that since this will make it hard for him to fulfil his duties as state president, he resigned from his position. Rather than appointing a new state head, the chief ministerial candidate of AAP, Ajay Kothiyal said that the party has appointed three working presidents Anant Ram Chauhan, Bhupesh Upadhyay and Prem Singh Rathore for Garhwal, Kumaon and Terai regions of the state respectively. The party has also appointed Deepak Bali and Basant Kumar as chairman and vice-chairman of the campaign committee for the assembly election.
Kothiyal said that the party will soon announce the names of its candidates for the remaining constituencies too so that the public can interact and communicate with the contenders.
