#HarishRawatstingoperation: Rebel MLAs demand dismissal of Congress-led Uttarakhand govt.

Dehradun: Rebel Congress MLAs on Saturday released a sting operation video and alleged that Chief Minister Harish Rawat tried to woo them with money. However, Uttarakhand CM Harish Rawat has dubbed it as 'false and fabricated'.

Releasing the video in a press conference, rebel Congress MLAs Sanket Bahuguna, Harak Singh Rawat and Subodh Uniyal today said the CD has exposed massive corruption in Uttarakhand. Congress MLA harak Singh Rawat the chief minister was trying to bribe the nine rebel Congress MLAs and few other BJP MLAs. He also alleged that the rebel MLAs have been receiving life threats. 

They said, "Ham 9 MLAs ke saath kuchh BJP MLAs ko bhi kharid farokht karne ki koshish ki jaa rahi hai (Attempts are being made to buy the support of nine Conrees MLAs and some BJP MLAs".)

Expressing concerns over their security the MLAs said," We are getting threats. We need security as our lives are in danger."

Harak Singh Rawat has demanded Uttarakhand governor K K Paul and President Pranab Mukherjee to dismiss the state government with immediate effect.

Rawat said: "We have also written a letter to the President Pranab Mukherjee to take objection to the whole situatiom. There is a constitutional crisis in the state."

Later in the day, CM Harish Rawat addressed the press and said he is being falsely implicated.

He alleged that “the reputation of the man behind the sting operation CD is not hidden from anyone in Dehradun”.

People from his profession also afraid to meet him as they fear being falsely implicated, blackmailed by him, the CM said.

Seeking to hit back at the channel owner, Rawat questioned his meteoric rise in terms of wealth.

“He has sought to destabilise past CMs as well who did not side with him,” the senior state Congress leader Rawat said.

Umesh Kumar, Editor-in-Chief of Samachar Plus News Channel has given open challenge to CM Rawat for the CBI probe to prove the genuity of sting CD.

"I take the moral responsibility of the sting video and its authenticity. I am ready for its CBI probe and if investigation proves my sting false or doctored, I am ready to go to jail," Kumar said.

To recall, nine Congress MLAs in Uttarakhand have rebelled and aligned with the BJP, threatening the Rawat government in the state.

Speaker Govind Singh Kunjwal had served notice to nine rebel Congress legislators, seeking their responses by March 26 on why they should not be disqualified from membership of the house for violating the party discipline and aligning with the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

After BJP gave a notice of no-confidence motion, Governor Krishna Kant Paul has asked CM Rawat to prove his majority on the floor of the House by March 28.
