Senior Congress leader Harak Singh Rawat has demanded a special assembly session from Governor K K Paul in wake of political crisis in the state. Harak Singh Rawat, who is leading the group of rebel MLAs, has said that Government may indulge in horse trading if the session is not called immediately.

On the other hand, the rebel MLAs are likely to meet President Pranab Mukherjee later this evening. Several MLAs have already flown to Delhi, while others are likely to arrive here by 4 PM.

Harak Singh Rawat was expelled from Uttarakhand cabinet on Sunday for what the party termed was his “unparliamentary conduct” in the state assembly.

The state cabinet which met under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Rawat approved a proposal seeking Harak’s expulsion from the cabinet.
