Dehradun: Cabinet Minister Dr. Harak Singh Rawat told that Harish Rawat's old trick is to create pressure. Harish Rawat had also said at Harki Pauri in Haridwar that I will not contest the elections, but he contested. He was the Union Minister and CM. In a video floating on social media, Harak said on a question asked about Harish Rawat's tweet that I think Harish Rawat and his supporters wanted from the beginning that Congress should declare the face of CM. A statement came from in-charge Devendra Yadav and the national leadership that Congress would contest the elections under collective leadership. I feel that somewhere in Congress, the opposition section is aggressive about this. Harish Rawat feels that if the Congress government comes, the party will not make him the CM. He is creating such pressure just before the election. This is their old way. Harak told that I remember when Harish Rawat was the state president. He staged a protest in Haridwar Harki Pauri that I will not contest any election after this. Thereafter, contested the 2009 Lok Sabha elections. Contested his wife in 2014. He was a minister at the center, he was a CM.
On the political uproar caused by the tweet of former Uttarakhand CM Harish Rawat, State Congress President Ganesh Godiyal said that the high command has called all the senior leaders to Delhi. He speaks with a guarantee that it will have a happy culmination in a day or two. However, in the questions arising after the tweet, the pain of Congress President Ganesh Godiyal also surfaced.
He accepted that the Congress organization needed to be reformed. According to Godiyal, the organization was inherited by him, except that there was no change. On the question of Harish Rawat being upset, Godiyal said that there are some people in the party, whose allegiance is not towards the Congress party but towards the people. I realized that Harish Rawat was saddened by these things.
