New Delhi, March 26: Backing Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat on Saturday, the Congress blamed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of releasing a fake sting and using shameful tactics of defaming the state government.
"After Uttarakhand High Court's decision to dismiss the petition filed by the rebel Congress MLAs challenging the notice issued to them by assembly speaker Govind Singh Kunjwal, the BJP is now resorting to dirty politics of releasing a fake sting to defame the state government," said Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala.
"Now they are hatching a conspiracy to destabilise a democratically elected government in the state. These sickening conspiracies are a shame for Indian democracy. After Arunachal Pradesh, now they are playing dirty politics in Uttarakhand," he added.
Surjewala further said: "After the defeat in Delhi and Bihar, they know it very well that they come to power democratically in any other state. So, out of botheration, now they are running a campaign to topple down the governments in all the Congress-ruled states."
