Dehradoon (ANI) July 25: Congress party wins all the 3 seats in Uttarakhand by-elections exhibiting a stark contrast to Lok Sabha elections where BJP emerged as the winners.
Congress high command announced Kishore Upadhyay as new chief of Uttarakhand congress replacing incumbent Yashpal Arya.
After the declaration of election results Kishore Upadhyay said,” this is a big achievement as congress party has won in 3 of the 5 seats that it had lost during lok Sabha elections held two months back.” Upadyay also said,” now people of devbhumi , ganga blessed land, and the land which is home to holy places like kedarnath, badrinath, yamunotri, gangotri and hemkunt sahib, have finally realized and noticed the work done by our party”
While speaking with ANI he said,” Our (congress party’s) main problem is that we don’t indulge in self-praising or promoting the work we do unlike other parties. Congress party works to serve the people and it is up to people to recognize our work”
When asked about how they campaigned for polls differently this time, Upadhyay told,” Harish Rawat and Sanjay Bahuguna worked really hard to put forth our achievements in front of people. We have never done any work based on negativity like deceiving and duping people because we are not BJP”
He also said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi deceived and disgraced Banaras by saying that Ganga summoned him to visit the river bank, as if Maa Ganga is his lover or younger sister. We have always addressed Maa Ganga as Ganga Ji”.
The anti-Modi slander went on as he told ANI,” Narendra Modi, if not anything has learned the art of duping from Banaras, which was once well known for thugs.”
Speaking on by poll results he said,” Finally people of Uttarakhand have realized that they were being duped and hence showed mirror to BJP.” While speaking on vote margins he said,” we won by about 20,000 – 21,000 votes in Dharchula, by 10,000 votes in someshwar and by 7000 votes in Doiwala, where we had lost by 22,000 votes in the last elections.”
Launching personal attack on Narendra Modi, Upadyay said,” Narendra modi is a show off, nothing about him is natural weather the way a carries himself , his gait, the way he talks and the way he dresses up.”
In the end he summed up by saying that artificial things do not last long and people of India will eventually realize and will know the true face of Modi, and he is happy that this realization has begun from Uttarakhand.(ANI)
