60 U’khand MLAs did not declare assets, AAP calls for action

Aam Aadmi Party on Tuesday demanded action against 60 Uttarakhand MLAs, including Chief Minister Harish Rawat and opposition leader Ajay Bhatt, for not declaring their assets as required by law.

A day ahead of Uttarakhand Assembly’s budget session, AAP leader Anoop Nautiyal wrote to Uttarakhand Assembly Speaker Govind Singh Kunjwal, accusing 60 of 70 MLAs of not declaring their assets and demanded action against them.

“An RTI query reveals that 44 out of a total of 70 members of the current Assembly never declared their assets before the Speaker since their election in 2012 while 16 other legislators, including Chief Minister Harish Rawat, his predecessor Vijay Bahuguna and Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Ajay Bhatt, did not declare their assets in 2014-2015,” Nautiyal said in the letter.
