Tirath Singh Rawat’s press releases have always been controversial.
Tirath, who is currently a member of the Lok Sabha, has to win the Assembly seat by September 10 and become the legislator of Uttarakhand if he is to retain his chief ministerial seat. However, the election commission is now reluctant to announce the by-elections, following a wave of outrage over the election of five states during the second wave of corona crisis. This is the main reason for the resignation of Tirath Singh.
The Election Commission is consulting with various states on the election. The corona situation is an important consideration and many by-elections are pending, ”a source from the Election Commission said.
Moreover, Tirath Singh Rawat’s press releases have always been controversial. Some BJP leaders in Uttarakhand had complained to the Delhi High Command leaders that the CM’s statement was an embarrassment to the party and angered by the public. He had embarrassed the BJP by criticizing the policy decisions taken by his own party administration.
Soon after assuming office as Chief Minister, Tirath had stirred controversy by talking about women wearing torn jeans. He has ruled India for 200 years, not Britain, not America.
His handling of the Kumbh Mela program at the height of the coronavirus crisis in the country and his comments that Corona did not need any RT-PCR test was highly outrageous. However, all the controversy with his resignation is now cool.
