Harish Rawat To Lead Campaign In Uttarakhand

New Delhi: The Congress on Friday pacified sulking former Uttarakhand chief minister Harish Rawat and appointed him the party’s campaign committee chief ahead of the assembly elections due next year in the hill state.

Rawat, who met Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in the national capital earlier in the day, expressed his delight with the party’s decision.

,Kadam, kadam badhaye ja, Congress ke geet gaye ja…I will be the face of election campaigning in Uttarakhand,” he said after the meeting, ANI reported.

In what was seen as an embarrassment for the Congress top brass ahead of the 2022 Uttarakhand Assembly polls, Rawat had earlier expressed strong displeasure over the state of affairs in the party.

“Isn’t it strange, one has to swim in the sea in the form of the upcoming electoral battle, the organizational structure instead of cooperation is turning its face away at most places or is playing a negative role,” Rawat tweeted in Hindi on Wednesday.

“There are many crocodiles of the ruling dispensation. On whose directions one has to swim, their nominees are tying my hands and feet,” Rawat, a member of the Congress Working Committee (CWC), wrote on the micro-blogging platform.

“And then quietly in a corner of my mind, a voice is erupting ‘na denyam, na palaynam’ (one who does not bow or flee). Perhaps the new year will show the way. I have faith that Lord Kedarnath will provide me guidance in this situation,” he tweeted expressing anguish at the factionalism in the Congress’ Uttarakhand unit.
