Congress, which is battling political crises in many states, is now struggling with the CM face in the upcoming assembly elections in Uttarakhand. In the name of Harish Rawat, the voices of protest have started appearing in the Congress itself.
Dehradun : After Punjab and Rajasthan, now there is a political tussle in Uttarakhand Congress. Controversy has intensified after the statement of new state president Ganesh Godiyal to make Harish Rawat the CM face in the assembly elections in Uttarakhand. Party’s state in-charge Devendra Yadav vetoed Rawat’s name without wasting time.
In fact, after becoming the state president, Godiyal made the first statement that the Congress would contest the elections in Uttarakhand on the face of Harish Rawat. At the same time, the new Leader of Opposition Pritam Singh said in a statement that the party would contest the assembly elections under collective leadership. Pritam Singh believes that the Congress high command has not declared any face yet. In his opinion, elections are to be held under collective leadership and if the party has any face, it is Sonia-Rahul.
Congress MLA from Dharchula Harish Dhami says that Harish Rawat has become the chairman of the election committee. We all demanded that elections should be fought on the face of Harish Rawat in Uttarakhand. Contradictory statements regarding the face of the party in the election have made it clear that now the political battle has started in the Congress over the face.
With the Congress leaders coming face to face regarding the face, the party’s state in-charge Devendra Yadav made it clear that Harish Rawat is a senior and experienced leader, but the party will fight the assembly elections under collective leadership.
Meanwhile, there have been debates on social media about not making women a part of the team of five presidents. The absence of a single name woman in the army of one president and four working presidents is forcing women to think whether Congress is the same party, which talks about giving 30 percent participation to women.
There is a loophole in the strategy prepared by the Congress strategists to satisfy everyone in the state. This is making it difficult for the party to respond.
