These MLAs said to be close to former chief minister, Harish Rawat hold a meeting at Khatima in Udham Singh Nagar on February 29.
Ostensibly fed up with the continuing the infighting among the senior leaders of the party, the young MLAs of the Congress party has decided to create their own pressure group. Seven MLAs of the party said to be close to former chief minister, Harish Rawat would hold a meeting at Khatima in Udham Singh Nagar district on February 29. These MLAs have invited many former MLAs and other leaders of the party for the meeting. The deputy leader of the Congress legislature party in Vidhan Sabha, Karan Mahra said after the meeting, the Congress MLAs would hold meetings with the senior leaders, Harish Rawat, Pritam Singh, Indira Hridayesh and Kishore Upadhyaya. He said that if the things don’t improve then the MLAs would meet the party high command. Interacting with media persons, Mahra said that due to infighting, the party is getting denigrated. He added that the leadership of the state party don’t take the MLAs into confidence on important issues. Mahra said that the seven MLAs of the Congress party can go to any extent to save their pride and Uttarakhandiayat. It is learnt that apart from Mahra, Quazi Nizamuddin, Furkan Ahmed, Mamta Rakesh, Harish Dhami, Manoj Rawat and Adesh Singh Chauhan would participate in deliberations at Khatima. Mahra said Congress party is not making proper use of the former chief minister and general secretary of All India Congress Committee (AICC), Harish Rawat in Uttarakhand. He said that Rawat is seasoned campaigner and has a vision for development of the state and Congress can return to power in the year 2022 if Harish Rawat is used properly.
Even as Mahra is trying to project that the seven MLAs are concerned about the unity of the party, the political observers are of the view that the meeting is the part of the strategy of the powerful Harish Rawat camp to flex its muscle and remove Indira Hridayesh from the position of Leader of Opposition (LoP) in assembly.
