Dehradun: Yoga guru Ramdev met Uttarakhand Chief Minister BC Khanduri and congratulated him for returning to the top post for the second time.

Wishing Khanduri a successful and bright future, Ramdev expressed hope that Uttarakhand would achieve new milestones under his leadership, an official release said here.

Several issues related to the development of the state were discussed during a brief meeting last night between Ramdev and Khanduri, it said.

The BJP in an apparent bid to lift its image following corruption charges and intra-party feuds ahead of Assembly polls, selected Khanduri for the top job on September 11 replacing Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank.
