Mussoorie, 16 May: Former Chief Minister Harish Rawat, who here to attend a private function, was welcomed by Mussoorie City Congress President Amit Gupta, and others. A press conference was also held at a hotel in Mussoorie.

“The victory in Karnataka is very important for the Congress,” said Rawat. He claimed that the Congress party is continuously improving its functioning, which is why it has won the elections, recently.

“There are upcoming state elections in which the Congress will enter the fray in a planned manner,” he asserted. “The party will definitely win in Madhya Pradesh, Telangana, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan. The effect of Bharat Jodo Yatra taken out by Rahul Gandhi is clearly being seen in the country. In Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, people have strong faith in Rahul Gandhi. The Congress will do better in the Lok Sabha elections, also. People of Madhya Pradesh want to punish BJP.”

It was also claimed that Congress would perform well in the municipal elections to be held in Uttarakhand. As these are taking place before the Lok Sabha elections, a good performance would be very important for the Congress. The party is already gearing up for the municipal elections. Rawat also asserted that there is no difference of opinion within the party. All the leaders are uniting to strengthen the party and prepare a strategy to win the elections. “If the party reposes faith in me, I can also enter the electoral fray,” the former CM stated.

Describing Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami’s government as a failure on every front, Harish Rawat said that even last year’s budget has not been fully spent. The same would also happen this year. Development work is being done at a very slow pace. He also claimed the water project for Mussoorie had been initiated by him.

Rawat also welcomed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s proposed visit to Uttarakhand in June, if it would help speed up development in the state and not for electoral purposes.
