Dehradun: Uttarakhand Chief Minister Ramesh Pokhariyal Nishank has decided to contest the next Assembly elections from Srinagar seat in the Garhwal region.

The decision by Nishank is due to the fact Thalisain Vidhan Sabha seat, currently represented by Nishank would become part of Srinagar Assembly seat because of delimitation, a senior party leader said.

BJP sources said Nishank has already made up his mind to contest the election from Srinagar and has apprised the party high command of his decision.

With this, the sitting MLA from Srinagar Brijmohan Kotwal would now contest the next election from Pauri seat, party sources said.

With the announcement, sources also pointed out that Nishank would lead BJP in the next Assembly elections scheduled to be held in 2012.
