New Delhi, Dec. 8 (PTI): Delhi has emerged as the youngest Assembly of the four elected today, with the average age of MLAs around 43.
In comparison, the average age of elected MLAs in Madhya Pradesh is estimated at 47 and that in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh 48.
However, Madhya Pradesh looks set to get the youngest chief minister. Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who will serve his third term, is 54.
Rajasthan’s Vasundhara Raje Scindia is 60. Chhattishgarh’s Raman Singh is 61. As is Renu Jogi, who was one of the Congress contenders for chief minister in Chhattisgarh.
Harshvardhan, the BJP’s chief ministerial candidate in Delhi, is 58. He, however, appeared reluctant to take the post today. Arvind Kejriwal, who came a close second, is much younger at 45.
