Election: Uttarakhand MLA Harak Singh Rawat expelled from BJP ahead of assembly polls, likely to join Congress

Uttrakhund: Just a few short weeks ahead of the Uttarakhand assembly elections 2022, State cabinet minister Harak Singh Rawat has been expelled from BJP and the state cabinet, as informed by the Chief Minister’s Office of the state on Sunday.

According to the CMO, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami expelled Harak Singh Rawat from the state cabinet, where he held the post of the state forest minister. He has also been expelled from BJP for a period of six years, according to reports.

The decision to remove Harak Singh Rawat is being seen as a strong message from the BJP. By sacking Rawat, the BJP has made it clear that it is not going to come under any pressure now.

Rawat, who had threatened to resign in the cabinet meeting recently, was also in constant touch with Congress leaders.

In December last year, Rawat had quit the Uttarakhand cabinet and threatened to resign from the BJP, but stayed after talks with party leaders. He had been pressuring the state government to fulfill his demands.

Harak Singh Rawat came to BJP five years ago after rebelling from Congress.
