FA­THER­SON CHAL­LENGE PREM KU­MAR DHU­MAL AND ANURAG THAKUR (BJP)

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - - HINDUSTANTIMES HTHIMACHALPOLLPRIMER -

Elected as a Lok Sabha mem­ber for the first time in 1989, Prem Ku­mar Dhu­mal re­mained the BJP’S undis­puted face in Hi­machal Pradesh for two decades. He was the BJP’S sur­prise pick for CM in 1998 and com­pleted the five-year term. Though age is not on his side this time, his mass ap­peal may work in his favour though he faces a chal­lenge in Union health min­is­ter JP Nadda. His son, Anurag Thakur, the crick­eter ad­min­is­tra­tor-turned-hamir­pur MP, is seen as a po­ten­tial leader to lead the BJP in Hi­machal Pradesh in the fu­ture.
