Rawat asks BJP not to indulge in mud-slinging politics
Since March27, when Uttarakhand’s power was transferred from Congress to Centre, the grand old party is in no mood to surrender and compromise with changing circumstances.
Apart from padyatra (foot march) with least media attention to visiting shrines of all religions, Harish Rawat is all trying to avoid waterloo of his long political career. He is not fighting only against Modi-Shah backed local saffron brigade, but also against his own party rebels who turned their back when he needed them the most. He also needs the support of fickle-minded PDF legislatures.
Ousted CM Hrish Rawat, who returned from Haridwar on Monday, warned opposition BJP to withdraw its mischievous plan of playing with the prestige and honour of Devbhoomi. He advised BJP not to indulge in mud-slinging politics; and better opt fair and development politics for welfare of common man. He said that people of Uttarakhand will give a befitting-reply to the BJP.
Interacting with media at his Bijapur Guest-house here, Rawat said, “The state has already suffered their lethal attacks. The big brass of BJP is again trying to allure MLAs with money bag. They are searching in the lane of Dehradun to trap more vulnerable legislatures.”
“The saffron brigade should not forget that Uttarakhand has given five MPs (Member of Parliaments to Lok Sabha) to BJP. The value-based and constitution-based politics is the mainstay of healthy democracy. They have to pay a heavy price for propagate poaching in politics under the cover of sharp-shooters,” He added.
Reacting to this, BJP senior leader Prakash Pant said, “The Rawat is trying to win public sympathy by violating section 144 of the CrPC. After the imposition of President’s Rule in state, all mining mafia has gone underground.”
