The Congress party said they are ready for any kind of probe for investigating the assets of former Uttarakhand CM Harish Rawat.

Responding to the BJP demanding an investigation into the assets of former chief minister Harish Rawat, the Congress party said they are ready for any kind of probe and a “non-political” commission can be set up for the purpose.

Former minister Pritam Singh, and Surendra Kumar, advisor to the former chief minister said the party is ready for a probe into the assets Rawat earned during his tenure in office.

They said the Uttarakhand high court chief justice should be requested to set up a five-member “non-political” probe commission to look into the matter.

State BJP chief Ajay Bhatt had on Sunday levelled corruption allegations against the former chief minister and his ministers and demanded a probe into their assets.
