Harish Rawat slams move of imposing President's Rule
Earlier on Sunday, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat condemned the move to impose President's Rule in the state as a "murder" of democracy and the Constitution and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's hands were soaked in the "blood" of the "trampled" aspirations of the people.
He said the central rule was a result of a "premeditated conspiracy" hatched by the Centre to topple a democratically elected Congress government in the state.
He also accused the BJP of baying for his blood right from the day he took over the responsibility in 2014 and aimed to destabilise his government.
