Commenting on the Ex-CM Harish Rawat’s allegation that four incumbent ministers are patronizing illegal mining, State Transport Minister Yashapal Arya has categorically said that the Ex CM Rawat has become a tired political soldier not capable of fighting in the field of politics.
In a bid to remain in the lime light, the Ex CM was making incredible statements and leveling allegations of corruption at the ministers in the BJP led state Government in Uttarakhand. Arya said, “He has a habit of playing the politics of allegations but this does not suit a former chief minister. It would have been better, if instead of leveling allegations, he would have come forward with facts and figure. Instead of simply leveling allegations, Harish Rawat should reveal the names of the allegedly corrupt ministers along with evidence to back his claim.”
Arya also criticized the former chief minister for his “autocratic” attitude. It was the attitude of Harish Rawat as chief minister which led the state’s economy into an undesirable condition while also proving to be a reason behind division in the Congress party in Uttarakhand. Replaying to a media query about the allegations being leveled by the former Chief Minister regarding the national highway 74 scam, Arya said that the public is aware about those involved in the scam and those who ended up making money from the scam.
Regarding the demand of the NH-74 scam main accused DP Singh and the Congress party’s demand to conduct CBI probe on it, Arya said that the State has already recommended CBI probe. Currently, SIT is investigating the case and expressed hope guilty will be put behind the bar shortly. Rejecting allegations of the opposition about probe into alleged scams in Gadarpur and Bazpur being suppressed, Arya said that probe is on in these cases.
