Dehradun, October 29
President of the Uttarakhand Kranti Dal (P) Trivender Singh Panwar will hold a two-day fast on November 2 at Gairsain where a Cabinet meeting of the state government is proposed on November 3. Panwar said he would also discuss the issue of withdrawal of support to the state government in the meeting.

He advised the ministers to go to Gairsain by roads and not by air in order to fully understand the condition of infrastructure in the state.
He gave credit to himself and his party for the drubbing of the Congress at the Tehri byelection. He accused the Congress for spending Rs 100 crore and the BJP for 15 crore to woo the voters with the might of money. He said his party might take many more years but it would certainly rule the state one day. He admitted that the party lacked the base of an organisation and resources to fight the election because of which it lost in the byelection. He said he himself had to jump into the electoral arena after the Congress played politics on the issue of domicile certificate and reservation in promotion.
He hoped his party to do well in the Lok Sabha election in 2014
and said he would not hesitate in joining hands with regional parties and other organisations as well. He, however, castigated regional party Uttarakhand Raksha Morcha, saying that it was the illegal by-product of the Congress and was surviving on the funds given by the Congress so it would not strike any alliance with the ruling party.
Panwar emphasised that the people of the Uttarakhand origin should be appointed on the position of Vice-Chancellor in all nine universities of the state. He raised finger at VC of Uttarakhand Open University Vinay Kumar Pathak, saying that Pathak was making Governor inaugurate that portion of the university which was under the scanner and mired in the allegations of corruption. His party would protest against that, he added.
