Dehradun: Asking the Congress to launch an agitation against the Centre on the issue of extension of industrial package, Uttarakhand media advisory committee Chairman Devendra Bhasin today alleged the Union government was adopting a discriminatory attitude towards the state.

In a statement, he said Congress leaders from Union Minister of State for Labour Harish Rawat to Uttarakhand PCC president Yashpal Arya to state Leader of Opposition Harak Singh Rawat were "saying they would launch an agitation against the state government but they should rather launch an agitation against the Centre, which is adopting discriminatory approach towards the state."

There are several issues related to the Central government for which the Congress leaders should launch an agitation like denial of extension of Concessional Industrial Package (CIP) to Uttarakhand and "failure" in checking price rise, he said.
