NEW DELHI: Hitting out at the government, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi hit out at the BJP, govt accusing it of toppling elected governments and horse-trading. He wrote on Twitter: “Toppling elected Govts by indulging in horse trading & blatant misuse of money & muscle, seems to be BJP’s new model, after failure in Bihar. This attack on our democracy & Constitution, first in Arunachal & now Uttarakhand, is the true face of Modiji’s BJP. Congress Party will fight demagoguery with democracy.”
A day earlier, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal had lashed out at BJP over political developments in Uttarakhand, accusing it of horse-trading. “Brazen horse trading-first Arunachal now Uttarakhand.BJP proving to be most corrupt, deshdrohi and power hungry party,” the AAP leader tweeted.
Kejriwal appeared to liken the instability in Uttarakhand to the earlier developments in Arunachal Pradesh, where President’s rule was imposed in January for a brief period. He had termed the imposition of President’s rule as “murder” of the Constitution.
The rebel MLAs included, Congress has a strength of 36 MLAs in the 70-member Assembly. The ruling party also has the support of six members of the Progressive Democratic Front.
