Cong blames own workers for party`s drubbing in civic polls
Dehradun: The ruling Congress, which did not win a single seat in the recent civic polls in Uttarakhand, today issued a show cause notice to 100 party leaders, including state minister Dinesh Aggarwal, for allegedly working against its official nominees.
The disciplinary committee of the PCC held a marathon four-hour meeting here and served 100 leaders, including Aggarwal with show cause notices asking them to explain within ten days why they worked against the party`s official nominees in different municipal corporations, PCC spokesman Dhirendra Pratap said.
PCC vice president Suryakant Dhasmana, who unsuccessfully contested for Dehradun mayoral seat losing it to BJP`s Vinod Chamoli, had lodged a complaint against Aggarwal accusing him of campaigning against him.
Aggarwal was the head of the PCC`s campaign committee for the polls held on April 28 which saw the BJP capturing four out of the state`s six municipal corporations.
