Harish Rawat accepts his presence in sting video
Dehradun: Former Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat, who was so far claiming his sting CD to be fake, virtually accepted his presence in the video on Sunday. He said that meeting a journalist was never a crime.
“How meeting a journalist could be a crime? How does talking to one of the MLAs, who was not technically disqualified by that time, matter? Have you ever heard us blocking any channels in politics?” said Rawat while talking to reporters in Dehradun on the sidelines of a programme and added, “hang me from the clock tower if I am found guilty.”
Clock tower is a busy chowk in the heart of Dehradun.
- It was clear from what Rawat said that he definitely met the journalist, who made the sting CD.
- The matter is significant as he had so far been challenging the truthfulness of the CD, calling it fake.
- The CD was recorded by the editor-in-chief of a private news channel and circulated by Congress rebels.
