Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jairam Thakur stated his visit to New Delhi had been scheduled earlier to discuss organisational matters with the party leadership.
Jairam Thakur said the state does not intend to ban Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film 'Padmavat' if there is nothing controversial in it.
Thakur's name was proposed by two-time former Chief Minister P.K. Dhumal and seconded by Nadda and another two-time Chief Minister Shanta Kumar.
The 52-year-old Thakur leader edged past party stalwarts in the race to the top office and will be the first leader from the politically-significant Mandi region to helm the hill state.
The five-time legislator Jairam Thakur is emerging as the frontrunner in the race as there is a kind of consensus building on his name.
