His Exalted Highness Bishnu Chetry (born 4 May 2001) is a senior Vishwamitran royal and former politician who is currently serving as the Rajpramukh of Uttaranchal since 8 June 2020 and has also been the Chairman of the Conference of Rulers, the council comprising of the rulers of the states of Vishwamitra, since 1 August 2020. Prior to his accession to the throne of Uttaranchal, he had also served as the Vice President of the nation on several occasions and had also served in the council of ministries under various prime ministers holding numerous important portfolios.

Early and personal life

Bishnu Chetry was born on 4 May 2001 in Guwahati in the Indian state of Assam as the first of the two child of his parents. He has an younger sibling, Prince Manoj who is the current Crown Prince of Uttaranchal. He is a childhood friend of Rashtradhyaksh Dhrubajyoti Roy and the two have pursued their school and senior secondary education together. He is currently pursuing his graduation in technical education.

Micronational career

Bishnu Chetry became a citizen of the nation in June 2015 upon his introduction to micronationalism by his friend Dhrubajyoti Roy and was soon successful in rising through the ranks. On 2 October 2015, then Prime Minister Tanishkaa Patranabish nominated him to succeed Anoushkaa Patranabish as the Vice President following the expiration of her three years tenure. Following the constitutional amendment of 6 December 2015, he was re-nominated to serve as the Vice President for a consecutive second term in office. He was re-elected to the office of the Vice President for the third term on 21 March 2016 alongside Tanishkaa Patranabish who was elected as the President defeating incumbent Dhrubajyoti Roy. His tenure as Vice President came to an end on 29 May 2016 after his decision not to contest the election. He was succeeded by Arnab Sil as the Vice President.

Following his stepping down as Vice President on 29 May 2016, he was inducted into the union council of ministers as Minister of Finance under prime minister Dhrubajyoti Roy. He was allocated the additional duties of the Minister of Legal Affairs. In a cabinet reshuffle which took place on 2 October 2016, newly-inducted Deputy Prime Minister Tanishkaa Patranabish was appointed as the Minister of Finance in his place, while he was appointed as the Minister of Home Affairs. However, a constitutional crisis took place on 27 November 2016 which was caused by the sudden resignation of sitting Vice President Arnab Sil who intended to join politics. As the constitution did not mention any succession law for the office of the vice president, then union government under prime minister Dhrubajyoti Roy unanimously nominate him for the office of the Vice President for an interim tenure. He continued to serve as acting Vice President until his election to the office on 27 January 2017. He also discharged the functions of the Acting President on 11 and 12 April 2017 following the resignation of incumbent President Sarala Baishya and until the appointment of Dhrubajyoti Roy as the President. He then continued to serve as the Vice President until his resignation on 22 July 2017 in order to return to the politics.

Following his stepping down as Vice President, he was nominated as a cabinet minister in the council of ministers of Prime Minister Tanishkaa Patranabish on 6 August 2017. He was appointed as the Minister of Human Resource Development, a bulk-ministry formed by merging of several important portfolios. He continued to serve in the same capacity in the cabinets of Dhrubajyoti Roy between 25 December 2017 and 14 May 2018. In the aftermath of the constitutional coup of 13 May 2018, he was nominated as the Cabinet Secretary by Supreme Leader Dhrubajyoti Roy in the council of ministers of President Tanishkaa Patranabish. He was appointed as the Minister of Defence and Cabinet Affairs when the executive cabinet under the presidency of Dhrubajyoti Roy was formed on 12 October 2018.

Bishnu Chetry was re-appointed as the Cabinet Minister of Home Affairs under Prime Minister Tanishkaa Patranabish on 7 January 2019 and was subsequently appointed as a Deputy Prime Minister on 17 March 2019 alongside Arnab Sil. On 14 July 2019, he alongside his deputy prime-ministerial colleague Arnab Sil was jointly appointed as Senior Ministers and was also moved from the home ministry to the defence ministry. In a cabinet reshuffle on 6 August, he was appointed as the Minister of External Affairs. On 29 September 2019, he was appointed as a Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Home Affairs. In November the same year, he was again appointed as Minister of External Affairs and relinquished his duties as the Home Minister. However, on the eve of the law and order breakdown of 12 December 2019, he was re-appointed as the Minister of Home Affairs with the additional duties of the Minister of Law and Justice.

On 10 January 2020, he was appointed as Second Deputy Prime Minister with the charge of the Ministry of External Affairs, Commonwealth Affairs and International Relations. He was not appointed as a minister in the caretaker government of Anoushkaa Patranabish which was formed on 3 March 2020 and was therefore named as an Advisor to the President with a rank equivalent to a cabinet minister. But three days later, on 9 March 2020, he was inducted as a Deputy Prime Minister for Home Affairs in the same cabinet. With Tanishkaa Patranabish's re-election as Prime Minister on 22 March 2020, he was appointed as Deputy Prime Minister for External Affairs and Health.

He entrusted with bigger duties when Tanishkaa Patranabish became President on 1 May 2020 following the resignation of Dhrubajyoti Roy. He was appointed as a Senior Minister, a position equivalent to the de facto head of government and was also the leader of the house and was responsible for home affairs. He also served as a member of the Council of State between 2019 and 2020.

Bishnu Chetry was nominated as the Rajpramukh of Uttaranchal state on 8 June 2020 with the establishment of the monarchy in the nation. Since 1 August 2020, he has also been serving as the Chairman of the Conference of Rulers, the council comprising of all the rulers of the states of the nation.
