Pritam terms refusal of CM to meet Cong delegation as murder of democracy
Angry on being not given permission to meet the chief minister with his delegation, the Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) chief Pritam Singh refused to attend his scheduled meeting with CM on Wednesday. The PCC president Pritam Singh had sought an appointment with CM Trivendra Singh Rawat with an objective of providing information about people of state stranded in different parts of the country. The CM office had set up the appointment for 12 pm on Wednesday but when the PCC president arrived at CM residence he was told that the CM would not entertain entire delegation. On it the members of the delegation that included Vice Presidents Jot Singh Bisht and Surya Kant Dhasmana, senior leader and son of former CM Major General ( Retd) B C Khanduri, Manish Khanduri, former MLAs Rajkumar and Vikram Singh Negi and Mahanagar President Lal Chand Sharma expressed resentment. The PCC President then decided not to meet CM and returned from there. Later talking to the media persons, an angry Pritam Singh said that it appears CM has became very scared from Coronavirus and don’t want to listen to the advice of members of political parties. On sarcastic note, he said, “ The power and positions are temporary but what he has done today is murder of democracy. I deplore it in strongest possible manner. We wanted to meet the CM to inform about the plight of people of state stranded in different parts of the country. In the App launched by the Manish Khanduri more than 15000 people have registered their problems. Similarly Jot Singh Bisht and Vikram Singh Negi also have made their lists of such people who need help. We wanted to inform him about the problems of farmers and food grain supply,’’ he said.
Manish Khanduri also criticised the CM for not caring to meet Congress leaders.
