Apparently having deliberated upon the implications of the ouster, the late last night expelled Harak Singh Rawat from the party for a period of six years. The action against Rawat has been taken for “anti-party activities”.

Chief Minister has dismissed Rawat from his cabinet too. Rawat, along with his -in-law Anukriti, met Congress chief last evening and they both are likely to join the INC today. While Rawat is likely to get an INC ticket from Doiwala in Dehradun, Anukriti is seeking a ticket from Lansdowne assembly seat in Pauri district.

Sources in the chief minister’s office have confirmed that the state unit has issued a statement on Rawat’s expulsion.

State chief Madan Kaushik said indiscipline would not be tolerated and, hence, the party had taken a strict step against Rawat — according to a statement.

Harak Singh Rawat is regarded as a political stalwart and in the 1990’s was a minister in Uttar Pradesh government after being elected from Pauri constituency. In 2002 and 2007, Rawat won from Lansdowne constituency and in 2012 registered a win from Rudraprayag. In 2017, he contested on ticket and won from Kotdwar.
