Dhami offers seat to Harish Rawat

Pithoragarh, March 9
With uncertainty on the new Congress Chief Minister, party legislators have started showing their loyalty towards their godfathers in state politics. Recently elected Congress legislator from the Dharchula Assembly segment Harish Dhami has offered his seat to Union Minister of State for Agriculture, Food Processing and Parliamentary Affairs Harish Rawat if he is nominated as Chief Minister of the state.
“Harish is my ideal in politics and I have been able to become a Congress legislator from Dharchula with his blessings. If he would be nominated as the next Chief Minister of the state by the party high command, I will offer my seat to him to become an MLA the in state assembly,” said Harish Dhami.
According to the newly elected Congress legislator from Dharchula, he has contested the election only to come forward for the development of the Dharchula area, which has been hit due to the Askot wildlife sanctuary.
“My only concern is development of Dharchula for which Rawatji is fully committed,” said Dhami.
The Congress legislator said he had been given ticket under the youth quota of Rahul Gandhi for which he had been named by Harish Rawat. “It would be fortunate for the people of Dharchula if the leader of the stature of Harish Rawat accepts contesting from the Dharchula Assembly seat,” said Dhami.
