Former Uttarakhand chief minister Harish Rawat on Wednesday dubbed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as desperate and said that the saffron party wanted to form the government since March 18. Rawat held the BJP responsible for the ongoing political crisis in the nation. "The BJP is desperate to form the government in Uttarakhand ever since 18th of March and which is why they just want to siphon support of the MLAs. All this political crisis has been brewed by the BJP," said Rawat.
Responding to a poser about the Congress' future course of action, Rawat said he expects that the High Court would do justice as the matter is pending before the same. The Nainital High Court on Wednesday declined the Centre's plea seeking more time to argue Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat's plea against the President's rule in the state.
However, the court assured the Centre that no orders would be passed today without hearing the Attorney General of India Mukul Rohatgi. The Centre also sought an adjournment in this affidavit so that they can study it and formulate their response. The Congress Party had on Friday filed a petition before the Uttarakhand High Court challenging the Centre's appropriation ordinance for the state.
