Will continue fight against Harish Rawat, says rebel Congress leader

Dehradun, May 10 (IANS) Former Uttarakhand minister Harak Singh Rawat, who along with eight rebel Congress legislators was barred from voting during the floor test on Tuesday, has vowed to continue his fight against the “corruption” of ousted chief minister Harish Rawat.

“I will continue my fight against Harish Rawat, who has been indulging in corruption,” Harak Singh Rawat told the media after the floor test held in the state assembly on the orders of the Supreme Court.

Rawat said he, along with other rebels, will soon decide their future course of action.

“Whether to join BJP or form a separate political outfit, we will soon decide. But one thing I would like to make clear is that at any cost we will not return to the Congress,” he said.

Harak Singh Rawat said that he had no regrets about his decision.

“Whatever stand we took was in favour of Uttarakhand as the Rawat government is looting the state. Even I was offered money by Rawat himself. So, I don’t regret any of my decisions,” he said.

Harak Singh Rawat, along with former chief minister Vijay Bahuguna and seven others, rebelled against the chief minister. He was also a strong contender for chief minister’s post in the Congress, but the party high command chose Harish Rawat for the post.
