Congress MP Vijay Bahuguna as the new Chief Minister of Uttarakhand will be held today at the Parade Ground in Dehradun. The swearing-in ceremony will be at 5 PM at Parade Ground on 13 March. We anticipate that there is going to be a big crowd when the ceremony takes place. So we have chosen the Parade Ground as the main venue for the purpose, state Chief Secretary Subhash Kumar said tonight.
