Fact: Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat recently described Congress as a "temple". He said, "We have to see the temple, its idols and not the priest because they keep changing. Whoever does a good job will remain."
On March 21, the Congress party's senior leader and an MP from Pauri Garhwal, 62-year-old Satpal Maharaj joined BJP in the presence of party's president Rajnath Singh at the party headquarters in New Delhi and assured the support of ten MLAs, thus changing the political equation of the hilly state.
However, his wife Amrita Rawat has reaffirmed her loyalty to Congress and has described herself as a "dedicated Congress worker".
