Don’t eye Himachal, Manipur with ‘avaricious’ eyes: Congress to Centre
Buoyed by the Nainital high court verdict reviving its government in Uttarakhand, the Congress on Wednesday said “those eyeing Himachal Pradesh and Manipur with avaricious eyes must control their greed”.
The party also made light of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) claims that the Harish Rawat government remains in a minority, which will be proved on April 29 when it takes the floor test.
“If that was the case, why did they not allow the floor test planned on March 28?”, party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi asked at the AICC briefing.
Singhvi, who represented the Congress in the Nainital high court as senior advocate, asserted that “those eyeing Himachal Pradesh and Manipur with greedy eyes, avaricious eyes must learn to control their greed”. “They must realise that power is available only through democracy and not through Article 356,” Singhvi said in a blistering attack on the Narendra Modi dispensation over its “misuse” of Article 356 in Uttarakhand.
