Jai Ram Thakur to take oath as Himachal CM on Wednesday.
Shimla’s historic ridge ground has turned into a fortress as it will be the site of Jai Ram Thakur-led BJP government’s swearing-in ceremony on Wednesday
A host of BJP bigwigs, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is expected to attend the ceremony and the party’s state unit has gone all out to ensure that the event, being held on the ecologically fragile ground, proves to be a success.
Functions on the ridge have often been mired in controversy with environmentalists raising concerns over its delicate terrain.
It is for the third time that a swearing-in ceremony is being organized at the ground, which has a British era water storage tank beneath it.>
