Saurabh Bahuguna, a cabinet minister in the Pushkar Dhami government in Uttarakhand, lost his iPhone 13 during a swearing-in ceremony in Dehradun on Wednesday. The legislator, who was sworn in as a minister at the parade ground, later released a social media post about the incident and appealed to people to contact him if anyone found his phone.
Bahuguna wrote on Facebook, “I lost my mobile phone (iPhone 13) somewhere while taking oath at the parade ground today. If anyone sees this, they should contact me through my Facebook page. Be careful if you get a call from my number. “
Sourav Bahuguna is the youngest son of former Chief Minister of Uttarakhand Vijay Bahuguna. His grandfather Hembati Nandan Bahuguna was a former Union Minister and Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. His father Vijay Bahuguna was elected MLA from Sitarganj constituency in 2012, while Saurabh Bahuguna reached the Uttarakhand Assembly in 2017 after winning the assembly elections. This time too, the BJP fielded Sourav from Sitarganj. Sourav Bahuguna has been appointed as a minister for the first time.
The Dhami cabinet can accommodate a total of eleven ministers. However, Rekha Arya, the only female minister, administered the oath of office to eight people on Wednesday. There are still three vacancies in the cabinet. Pushkar Singh Dhami, Dhan Singh Rawat, Ganesh Joshi, Rekha Arya, Subodh Uniyal, Sourav Bahuguna, Premchand Agarwal, Chandan Ram Das and Satpal Maharaj were sworn in as cabinet ministers.
