Congress party in Uttarakhand will seek answers from the BJP Govt in Center for allegedly meting out step-motherly treatment to the hill state and inflicting on it the “wound of defection”, during its ‘Satat Vikas Sankalpa Yatra’ starting September 10.
During the first phase of the Yatra being launched from Haridwar, the party will “seek explanation” from Prime Minister Narendra Modi for allegedly belying his pre-poll promises at an event titled “Answer Modi Answer BJP” besides highlighting the state government’s people-friendly policies.
Originally the Yatra was conceived as a march to create awareness among people about the state government’s people-friendly policies and decisions taken by it in the poll-bound state, Pradesh Congress’ chief spokesman Mathura Dutt Joshi said.
The modification in the agenda of the yatra has been effected at the suggestion of Chief Minister Harish Rawat who
wants the campaign to not only highlight the state government’s achievements but also “expose the conspiracy” hatched by the Center to destabilize the elected state government by engineering defections in the party and posing hurdles in development of the state by non-allocation of funds, Joshi said.
A day after the launch of the yatra, the state unit of Mahila Congress will hold a rally-cum-demonstration against price rise in Dehradun to be followed by a rally in Bajpur over the plight of farmers in the country, he said.
