Everyone expected either Vasundhara Raje, Mahant Balaknath, Diya Kumar, or Kirodi Lal Meena to be chosen, but the BJP surprised everyone by appointing first-time MLA Bhajan Lal Sharma as the new Chief Minister of Rajasthan. The party did not choose the experienced two-time CM Raje, the young spiritual leader Balaknath, or any of the other candidates.
Not only is this surprising for the people of the state, but even the reaction from Bhajan Lal Sharma’s family is unexpected. They had no idea, and when the news broke, his wife, son, and parents spoke to the media, sharing their views. The sudden announcement of Sharma as the Chief Minister came amidst discussions about names like Vasundhara Raje, Balaknath, and Kirodi Lal Meena.
PM Modi wishes Bhajan Lal Sharma on his special day:
