From an obscure RSS pracharak from Dehradun city to the Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, it has been an amazing journey for Trivendra Singh Rawat, whose fierce loyalty to the BJP and the RSS saw him pip rival heavyweights like Satpal Maharaj to the post.

Coupled with his administrative and organisational skills and experience, his loyalty to the party and RSS ideology seemed to have won the day for him.

His organisational skills were put to test in Jharkhand, where he came out with flying colours, guiding the BJP to a resounding electoral victory in the assembly polls in 2014 as party in-charge.

Rawat also has considerable administrative experience as he was a minister in the BJP governments led by BC Khanduri and Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank.
