CM using govt machinery, residence for his son: Chufal 
BJP to write to Election Commission

Dehradun, September 22
President of the state unit of the BJP BS Chufal today alleged that Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna was misusing the government machinery and his official residence for his son and Congress nominee for the Tehri byelection Saket Bahuguna.
Chufal said the party would write to the Election Commission seeking its intervention. “Instead of opening a separate office for overseeing the Tehri byelection, the Chief Minister has made his official residence the election office for junior Bahuguna. Even the election publicity material is being distributed from the CM’s house and meetings with MPs and MLAs are being organised there only," he said, while talking to mediapersons today.
Chufal alleged that during the nomination of Saket Bahuguna, vehicles used for the procession that traversed from Parade Ground to the Collectorate were in excess. “We will urge the EC to examine the videos of the procession as the vehicles seemed to be more than that mentioned in the modal code of conduct,” he said.
On the issue of Matbar Singh Kandari’s exit from the BJP, Chuphal said,
“Kandari has left the party in his old age and it will not have any impact on the BJP. In the same manner, if former Chief Minister ND Tiwari was to exit the Congress today, it will also have little impact on the party,” said Chufal.
He refuted the allegations about his lack of success in stemming desertions and that in this regard his tenure could be termed unsuccessful. “You cannot prevent opportunistic people from leaving the party. If people have left the BJP, some have also joined us, including Munna Singh Chauhan and Madhu Chauhan,” he added.
