A day after President’s rule was imposed in Uttarakhand, Congress on Monday said it will will take out peaceful processions all over the state starting this evening “against the murder of Parliamentary and democratic norms in Uttarakhand”. The party also said that it will approach all legal and constitutional forums against the “injustice” done to Harish Rawat government.

“We will go to all legal and constitutional forums against the injustice done to a democratically elected government.

“As BJP knew it was bound to be defeated in the floor test just a day later, it hastened to impose President’s rule
in the state,” state Congress president Kishore Upadhyay.

Describing the imposition of central rule in the state as a “black day” in the history of Indian democracy, he said the timing of the move which came just a day before Harish Rawat government was to go for a floor test in the state Assembly makes the intention behind it suspect.

He claimed that the Narendra Modi government was “baying for the blood of Harish Rawat” since the very outset.

Apart from approaching the courts, Congress will also take the matter to the people to “expose the BJP-led
government at the Centre which had dislodged a popular government which was doing a commendable job in the state”, he said.
