Uttarakhand BJP has claimed that the ruckus in the party late on Friday night has come to an end. The party's central leadership intervened late last night and convinced Forest and Environment Minister Harakh Singh, who announced his resignation in the cabinet meeting. However, nothing has been said about this from Singh's side so far. He is at an undisclosed location and his phone is also switched off since he announced his resignation in the cabinet meeting.
Harak Singh Rawat, a senior minister in the Rawat government and a strong leader of the state, suddenly resigned from the post on Friday. After this, Umesh Sharma Kau, a close aide of Harak Singh and MLA from Raipur assembly seat of Dehradun, also resigned. The resignation of two big leaders one after the other was being considered a big loss for the BJP, so the party high command became active for damage control.
The restlessness of the BJP was also because the former CM of the state Harish Rawat is going to reach Dehradun on Saturday afternoon only. He has got the right to lead the party by election from the Congress High Command. If sources are to be believed, Rawat is in touch with the MLAs who switched from Congress to BJP before the last assembly elections. There is also news that except cabinet minister Subodh Uniyal in Chief Minister Dhami's government, most of the former Congress leaders are preparing to return home.
There is a long discussion about Harakh Singh joining the Congress. Now just before the elections, Harakh wants to show himself as a martyr on the pretext of a medical college in Kotdwar. So, despite the BJP's claim that everything is fine, it cannot be trusted.
