Congress’ Uttarakhand co-in-charge Sanjay Kapoor said on Sunday he would discuss the IAS sting operation issue in detail with chief minister Harish Rawat to know the reasons for delay in relieving the officer despite the Center’s decision to curtail his inter-cadre deputation.
Kapoor expressed his concern as to why the state government has not made its stand public on the issue of deputation of CM’s secretary Mohammed Shahid who was caught in camera allegedly striking a bribe deal with a liquor trader.
Kapoor, however, claimed the state government has its way of working but he would like to discuss the matter with the chief minister.
“I will speak to the CM on this matter and seek his view why the officer has not been relieved from his present position despite the fact Centre has already quashed his deputation,” said Kapoor, on the sidelines of state Congress’ quit India movement anniversary programme in Dehradun.
Earlier, scores of Congress workers led by chief minister Harish Rawat and state Congress president Kishor Upadhaya to celebrate the anniversary of Quit India Movement in the form of Mahatma Gandhi-Ambedkar rally from the state party headquarters.
Speaking on the occasion, Rawat and Upadhay asked the party leaders and workers to work hard for strengthening the Congress at the grassroots and to ensure victory in the 2017 assembly elections.
