The Uttarakhand Kranti Dal (UKD) accused a newspaper stating that a report published in it ahead of the polling sent a wrong message to the public. The party had suffered considerably in the parliamentary election due to the wrong message spread among the public and party supporters, it was alleged.
Addressing the media on Friday, UKD president Diwakar Bhatt said, “I have been repeatedly saying that UKD members were never good politicians but are revolutionaries. In the past, we fought for the formation of the state which is now breaking into pieces under the rule of the political parties that have governed the State so far. We have been contesting elections since the start as we are the only regional party here. In such a scenario some people tried to spread wrong news about us which caused us loss especially during polling held recently.”
He alleged, “A noted newspaper had published a report about us stating that the party is divided into two factions with one of them asking colonel (retd) Ajay Kothiyal to join UKD. Further, it was claimed in the report that he would be given the task to lead the party. This article sent a wrong message to our supporters and well-wishers and portrayed us as divided. Intentionally or unintentionally, this report favoured our rival parties that have ruled and ruined the state,” he alleged.
