Merger of UKD’s two factions ruled out

Pithoragarh, December 14
Uttarakhand Kranti Dal (Diwakar) leader Kashi Singh Airy ruled out the possibility of unity among the two factions of the UKD before the elections. Both the factions have charted their own ways.
The fight for the election symbol between two factions and the alliance of the UKD (Diwakar Bhatt faction) with the ruling BJP showed that the two are widening gaps between them,” said Airy.
Addressing a press conference, the senior leader the UKD (Panwar) said his party was willing to contest for all 70 Assembly seats in the state if the third front does not come into existence. “If the third front comes into existence, the party can leave 35 seats for the other front partners,” said Airy.
According to him, the final meeting to form the third front is likely to be held on December 25.
Commenting on the recent party meetings of the BJP and the Congress, the senior UKD leader said the parties were using state money earned through corrupt means on hiring choppers and aeroplanes to influence the common man.
The recent conclaves of these parties, in which the state helicopters and chartered aeorplanes were used in a big way in the district, showed the tendencies of the parties to influence the masses,” said Airy.
