New Delhi: Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat on Sunday accused Bharatiya Janata Party of money and power to destablise the government in the state. Rawat also said that BJP is trying to murder democracy and the Constitution.
"BJP used money and power to destablise the democratically elected government. BJP is trying to murder democracy here," said Uttarakhand CM Harish Rawat.
While addressing a press conference a day ahead of floor test in the state Assembly on Monday, the Chief Minister blamed Modi, Shah and the rebel MLAs for the political crisis in Uttarakhand and said it was an unholy alliance to destabilise a democratically-elected government and derail the process of development in the state.
Meanwhile, Uttarakhand Speaker Govind Singh Kunjwal late on Saturday disqualified the nine Congress MLAs accused of rebellion from the House on the recommendation of Chief Minister Harish Rawat.
Rawat had urged the speaker to disqualify them on the grounds that they have joined hands with the BJP in order to bring down his government.
