Dehradun: Uttarakhand government on Thursday asked the state DGP B S Sidhu to examine the authenticity of the sting operation video CD released by BJP accusing Chief Minister Harish Rawat of corruption in liquor licenses.
Informing this here, Chief Minister's media In-charge, Surendra Kumar today also said that no action will be taken against any official until the veracity of the video is verified.
"Chief Minister Harish Rawat had asked Uttarakhand BJP B S Sidhu to probe the authenticity of the CD and no action will taken against any official till the verification is done," he said.
