Uttarakhand Elections 2017: Chief Minister Harish Rawat alleged that PM Narendra Modi had engineered defection in the state and than lodged a complaint against him. Rawat said that as if being ‘burgled’ was not enough that now a complaint has also been registered against him. He questioned Modi government’s sense of justice for wrongly accusing him. He voiced his grievances at a public gathering in support of Congress nominee Rajendra Bhandari.

Comparing himself to millet Rawat said that he is like the mountain foodgrain; the more he is grounded he will emerger purer and better. Reminding people about the 2013 Uttarakhand flashfloods which left behind great devastation, he refreshed their memories about his contribution towards rebuilding of the state.

“We have recovered from the tragedy. Chardham yatra has been revived, roads have been rebuilt. The derailed economy of the state is also back on track. The per capita income is also increasing,” Rawat said.
