Idea Exchange With Harish Rawat

A former Union cabinet minister, who held the water resources portfolio in UPA-II, Harish Rawat took over as Uttarakhand CM in 2014. On March 18 this year, nine Congress MLAs rebelled against Rawat, reducing his Congress-led government to a minority. President’s Rule was imposed in the state on March 27, but the Centre’s decision was overturned by the state high court, bringing Rawat back to power. The fate of the indomitable Uttarakhand leader now lies with the Supreme Court, which will rule on the HC verdict quashing President’s rule on July 12.
