New Delhi, March 9
Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat resigned on Tuesday.
Earlier, Rawat met BJP president JP Nadda hours after a crucial meeting of Home Minister Amit Shah with the party chief at New Delhi on Sunday evening amid a serious discontent from a section of the state BJP MLAs and MPs, who are bitterly opposed to the Chief Minister’s style of functioning.
Sources said the BJP leadership was “worried about continuing discontent” against Rawat, which could gauged over the way for Raman Singh, general secretary in-charge Dushyant Kumar Gautam and others were dispatched to talk to MLAs and state leaders over the state-of-affairs there.
Apparently, there were apprehensions about all of it “spilling out in the open” amid the ongoing Assembly elections, a reason why observers were sent in such a hurry to “handle” the situation.
Apart from the “general discontent” about Rawat’s way of functioning, it seems members of the Sangh parivaar too are upset over some decisions of his government. Meanwhile, a few Congress party’s imports in the BJP are also threatening to jump ship ahead of Assembly polls next year, spelling trouble for the ruling BJP in the face of the “growing influence” of Aam Aadmi Party in the state.
More details are awaited.
