Dehradun, September 28
Former Chief Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank today accused the Uttarakhand Congress of offering BJP MLAs money even as the model code of conduct was in place in the state.

"The Congress is at its old game of offering the BJP MLAs pecuniary benefits and is misusing official machinery to turn the Tehri bypoll in its favour. It is a high stake game as the future of the Chief Minister's son is at stake," said Pokhriyal.
He said the Congress was trying to recreate the Sitarganj conditions in Tehri when money was used to ensure Chief Minister's win.
"The situation was fluid and all kinds of offers are there for the BJP MLAs," alleged Nishank at a press conference.
Nishank said the people of Uttarakhand would give a befitting reply to the Congress by voting in support of BJP's candidate from the Tehri parliamentary seat Mala Raj Laxmi Shah.
Hitting out at the UPA government, Nishank said the economic reforms kicked off by the UPA government at the Centre had hit the common man the hardest and the people of the country were afraid that the UPA may even sell the country one day.
"The Chief Minister of Uttarakhand too is following in his footsteps and had almost given the sugar mills on public private mode but it had to retreat its steps after our party staged protests," he said.
Meanwhile on the issue of re-entry of Shailender Rawat, former BJP MLA who was expelled by the party in the wake of former Chief Minister BC Khanduri's defeat from the Kotdwar Assembly seat in the 2012 elections, Nishank said he was not aware about the party's decision.
However, Shailender Rawat was present at the BJP city office today. Rawat is also a Nishank loyalist. 
The Congress is offering the BJP MLAs pecuniary benefits and is misusing official machinery to turn the Tehri bypoll in its favour. It is a high stake game as the future of the Chief Minister's son is at stake.
