After sweeping Himachal Pradesh, the BJP now finds itself looking for a new man for the top job. Prem Kumar Dhumal, the rare Chief Ministerial face projected by the BJP before the polls, lost in his seat but is still in the race, NDTV has learnt. On Monday, as it became clear that Mr Dhumal, 73, was not winning even though the BJP was racing to an emphatic victory, a veteran lawmaker offered a way out. Virender Kumar, elected for the fourth time from the Kutlehar constituency, offered to vacate his seat for Mr Dhumal, say sources.
