New Delhi: Congress Wednesday ruled out differences within its ranks on the party`s decision to appoint Vijay Bahuguna as Chief Minister of Uttarakhand and said there is "no revolt" on the issue and the government in the hill state will function normally.
Admitting that there are "minor issues", Congress
spokesperson Rashid Alvi said it is not mandatory for all the
MLAs to be present during the swearing in of a Chief Minister.
"There is no revolt or a big problem there which is being
hyped there by media... I can assure you that everything is
normal in the party. Vijay Bahuguna is Chief Minister of
Uttarakhand and his government will function normally," Alvi
told reporters outside Parliament.
He was asked whether everything is normal with the party
"There is no difference in the party and this is an
internal matter of the party. It is not mandatory for all the
MLAs to be present during the swearing in of a Chief
Minister," he said.
Blaming media for creating hype over the issue, he said,
"This is being hyped by media. There are minor issues that
happen in a party and all these issues can be sorted out
mutually. There is nothing to worry in it."
When asked why Harish Rawat- who had expressed his
displeasure after being sidelined by the party leadership for
the post of Chief Ministership of the state- is not attending
the Budget Session of Parliament, Alvi said, "He must be busy
with something. He will come to Parliament soon."
