Political journey for Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat is getting difficult day by day. Rebel Congress leaders have now released a sting CD showcasing Rawat indulging in horse trading to save his government. On the side-lines Harak Singh Rawat has demanded suspension of the whole Cabinet. Reacting to the news CM Harish Rawat addressed a press conference and claimed that the video released is fake. He also mentioned that a proper investigation should be held in the CD.

Releasing a sting operation video on Saturday, rebel Congress MLA Harak Singh Rawat alleged that the government is trying to arm-twist as well as threaten them.

The rebels claimed the sting operation, which they said was conducted on March 23 and shows CM Rawat talking about buying MLAs, was done by a local channel whose head spoke to the CM.

A total of nine MLAs had rebelled against Congress to join hands with BJP, this has left Uttarakhand government in crisis of claiming majority.
