Cong condemns attempted attack on its MLA
The Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) president Pritam Singh strongly condemned the attempted attack on Kedarnath MLA Manoj Rawat. In a statement, the PCC president said that the attempt to throw petrol on the Congress MLA from Kedarnath shows that the law and order situation in the state is in ruins. He said that the BJP government has failed miserably to deliver on its promise of providing governance which is free from any fear. He said that under the BJP rule, the morale of the criminals is very high and they are engaged in criminal activities sans control. Singh said that the attack by liquor mafia on a public representative has exposed the state government. He added that the Congress party would burn the effigy of state government at all district headquarters on Saturday in protest against the worsening law and order condition on the state.
