NEW DELHI,�March 20 - Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi today�mounted a sharp attack on the Prime Minister and the BJP in the�wake of the Uttarakhand crisis, saying it has exposed the �true face of Modiji�s BJP� and declared that the Congress would fight this �demagoguery with democracy�.
Targeting the ruling party at the Centre over the issue, he said in a series of tweets, �Toppling elected Govts by indulging in horse trading & blatant misuse of money & muscle, seems to be BJP�s new model, after failure in Bihar�.
�Congress Party will fight demagoguery with democracy. This attack on our democracy & Constitution, first in Arunachal & now Uttarakhand, is the true face of Modiji�s BJP�, the Congress vice president said.
The Congress government in Uttarkhand led by Harish Rawat plunged into a crisis two days back with nine party MLAs turning rebels and opposition BJP approaching the Governor staking claim to form the government. Governor Krishna Kant Paul had yesterday asked Rawat to prove his majority on the floor of the state Assembly by March 28.
The Governor�s directive to Rawat came even as BJP, claiming majority with support of nine rebel Congress MLAs in the 70-member Assembly, stepped up efforts to form its government, contending that the Rawat ministry has been reduced to a minority. � PTI
