Dehra Dun : BJP supremo L K Advani may be in for a rude shock when he enters Uttarakhand, a state ruled by his party. The reason. Uttarakhand Kranti Dal (UKD) has decided to show black flags to the veteran BJP leader, when his rath enters the state on its â€˜chetna yatraâ€™.
National president of the UKD, Trivendra Singh Panwar said that the opposition to the yatra being undertaken by the senior BJP leader was for no other purpose but the fact that Advani was undertaking the yatra to highlight the corruption, but was quiet on the large number of scams that took place in Uttarakhand during the tenure of Ramesh Pokhriyal as chief minister.
â€œWe will give him a memorandum and ask him that he should ask the present chief minister B C Khanduri to go in for a CBI probe in the scams that took place during his predecessor. There have been the sturdia scam, kumbh scam and hydro-electric projects scam, which people are eager to know aboutâ€, he added.
Panwar said that it is no secret that the BJP high command removed Pokhriyal as chief minister of the state and replaced him with Khanduri because of the falling graph of the popularity and the negative publicity that the party was getting. â€œEven after this if Advani is silent on the rampant corruption prevalent in Uttarakhand, is the reason we intend greeting him with black flagsâ€, he claimed.
