Leader of opposition Indira Hridyesh has said the Congress will bring a privilege motion against chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat in the next state assembly session, as his promise about CBI inquiry into the NH-74 scam has not been honoured.

“The government has not kept the words spoken by chief minister inside the state assembly, which is a very serious issue,” said Hridyesh, in a press conference in Haldwani on Friday.

At present, a special investigative team (SIT) in probing the NH 74 scam.

Hridyesh also warned of launching “a Jail Bharo Andolan if the state government did not keep its word and ordered a CBI inquiry into the scam.”

In the NH-74 scam unearthed early this year, several farmers were allegedly paid compensation at the commercial rate against their agricultural land acquired for widening of the national highway.

Hridyesh also accused the state government of promoting alcoholism in the state by opening liquor shops in residential areas. She also alleged that liquor mafia was terrorising the women opposing the liquor shops and slapping cases against them. She said that Congress leader Sumit Hridyesh had already started an agitation against the liquor shops in residential colonies and the Congress would soon launch a massive agitation over the issue.
