Dehradun: With assembly polls at Uttarakhand scheduled in 2012, the State Congress committee has speeded up their campaign against the BJP government led by Ramesh Pokharyal Nishank. A delegation of state Congress will meet the President on June 2 and request for a CBI investigation into the alleged corruption reported in the BJP government tenure.

State Congress Legislative Party leader Harak Singh Rawat accused Nishank of acting with political vendetta against the legislators of opposition parties. After launching a campaign against the BJP state government, Congress aims to raise the issue on a national level.

Interacting with media persons in the assembly premises on Tuesday, Rawat said the Congress delegation will meet the President on June 2 seeking CBI probe in the misuse of funds in projects related to hydro water project allocation, Sterdia, Kumbh, Seeds and Tarai Development and Natural Disaster.

Rawat claimed Congress will form the next government in Uttarakhand with full majority. Rejecting the factionalism within the party cadres, he said there may be some differences in opinions but ideologies are same.

He expressed his desire to contest assembly election from Doiwala constituency. Rawat did not fail to mention that the state government in an act of political vendetta had initiated action against Congress legislator Kishore Upadhyay.
