"It is hard to understand that the force which is deployed to protect central institutions is being deployed outside the residences of legislators and that too under President's rule...It is strange," Rawat told reporters.

Reiterating his charge that BJP had bought Congress MLAs in Uttarakhand, Rawat said some "very important people from New Delhi had come in a Honda City car with a heavy escort of central forces. It must be investigated who these important people were and what was the purpose of their visit."
"They were BJP sharpshooters loaded with bags of money who shot nine of Congress' MLAs," he said. Rawat also alleged the state suffered huge losses due to the Centre's conspiracy and demanded that the Governor implement the decision taken by the Cabinet during his tenure as chief minister as it was his "constitutional obligation".
