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.
