Dehradun, July 10

BJP MLA from Kedarnath Shaila Rani Rawat died at a private hospital here late on Tuesday night. She was 68.

Rawat was on ventilator support at the hospital for the last few days. She was being treated for a backbone injury.

Rawat won the Kedarnath seat to make it to the Uttarakhand Assembly for the first time in 2012 on a Congress ticket. She lost the seat in 2017 but won it again in 2022 on a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ticket.

She was among the 10 Congress MLAs, who had rebelled against former chief minister Harish Rawat in 2016 and joined the BJP.

Condoling her death Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami said it was an irretrievable loss for both the BJP and the people of the state.

She will always be remembered for the dedication with which she served the people of her constituency, Dhami said in a post on X.

He also laid a wreath on her body, which was kept at the BJP's state office here for people to pay their last respects.
