Dehradun: In Uttarakhand, infighting has come to the fore in the BJP as assembly elections are near. Cabinet Minister Harak Singh Rawat has resigned from his post in Pushkar Singh Dhami's government. Congress has now claimed that even an MLA has given up the BJP's party. Attacking the official Twitter handle of the Uttarakhand unit of the Congress, it was written, "Sinking ship, people fleeing. The tweet also shared two photos, one of which was reported to be the resignation of Cabinet Minister Harak Singh Rawat, while the other mentioned MLA Umesh Sharma Kau leaving the BJP.
For your information, MLA Umesh Sharma is a member of the Uttarakhand legislative assembly from the Raipur seat in the Dehradun district. In 2016, Umesh Sharma Kau joined BJP along with other Congress MLA. On the other hand, if we look at the political career of Harak Singh Rawat, who is the Minister in the Ministry of Forest and Environment, Labour and Skill Development in Pushkar Singh Dhami's cabinet, he has shown rebelliousness on many occasions. He had suppressed the BJP in 2016, leaving Congress. It is being speculated that he may return home to his old party once again. If that happens, many equations can change for Harish Rawat.
Harak Singh Rawat is the same leader who blew the bugle against the Harish Rawat government in Uttarakhand in 2016. The Government was about to fall and the matter went to the Supreme Court. In such a situation, if Harak Singh returns now, things may be uncomfortable for Harish Rawat as well. However, there was also a very positive discussion between the two recently. Now that the elections are on its head, the loss of Harak could prove to be a big loss for the BJP.
