"People of Uttarakhand gave an unprecedented mandate to BJP in these elections where it won all the five seats. However, non-representation of the state in Modi's Cabinet shows the party's failure to honour the massive mandate it got," PCC spokesman Dhirendra Pratap said in Dehradun.
    
"Denial of a Cabinet berth to BJP MPs elected from the state, including three former CMs, shows that they have failed to prove their utility," the Congress leader said.
    
Terming it as ‘unfortunate’, he said that the people of Uttarakhand felt ‘cheated’ by a party in which they reposed all their faith.
    
Asking the Prime Minister to realize this ‘grave error’ before it is too late, Pratap said that the people could avenge their ‘humiliation’ in the Panchayat elections, which would be held next month.
