‘Uttarakhand elections will not be fought under my leadership’: Harish Rawat’s clarify after ‘arrogant’ speech

Hours after former Uttarakhand chief minister and Congress leader Harish Rawat held a press conference on Sunday indicating that he was asked by Rahul Gandhi to lead the Congress’ election campaign in the poll-bound state, he now seems to be behind. are gone.

The senior Congress leader said on Twitter earlier in the day that he had spoken wrong in his “arrogance”.

Recently, politicians who took to Twitter with several cryptic posts expressing their disappointment with the Congress, emerged victorious from a meeting with Rahul Gandhi on Saturday.

Rawat, accompanied by Uttarakhand Pradesh Congress President Ganesh Godiyal, told reporters soon after his arrival that he has been asked to lead the party’s campaign in the state in which everyone will help him.

“Made a small mistake yesterday at the press conference. My arrogance is reflected in the use of the word leadership,” his tweet began, roughly translated from Hindi. Apologizing for his “arrogant speech”, the Congress leader said the use of the word was not beautiful.

“The election will be held not under my leadership, but under my leadership,” he clarified.
