UP & Uttarakhand and their new probable CMs
The Bharatiya Janata Party is all set to form the government in states of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, but more than that what is making the news is the speculation over the names of the chief ministers.

Officially, the BJP has not yet announced the names of the chief minister for the states of Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh but the oath taking ceremony for the new ministers for the state of Uttarakhand has been fixed for 3 pm on March 18.

The BJP has asked all the 57 newly-elected legislators to come to the state capital between Friday and Saturday.

Along with certain ministers from the Central government, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah are likely to be present at the oath taking ceremony.

In Uttarakhand, BJP leaders Trivendra Singh Rawat and Prakash Pant are said to be frontrunners in the race to be the next chief minister of the state.

While in Uttar Pradesh, names of state BJP chief Keshav Prasad Maurya, Manoj Sinha and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh are doing rounds for the post of CM.

The central observers for Uttar Pradesh, Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu and party general secretary Bhupendra Yadav, are also scheduled to be in Lucknow on Saturday to hold a legislative meeting of the party to elect a leader. The party's parliamentary board had empowered BJP president Amit Shah to name the chief ministers in both the states.
