Political crisis remain in Uttarakhand

Dehradun: Uttarakhand's political upheavel showed no sign of abating as both sides -- Chief Minister Harish Rawat and rebel Congress leader Harak Singh Rawat -- have hardened their stands.
On Sunday, as the ruling coalition discussed how to prove the majority on the floor of the House by March 28 as mandated by governor K.K.Paul, show cause notices were pasted on the houses of Congress rebel legislators and the chief minister personally oversaw the sealing of the Vidhan Sabha office of Harak Singh Rawat, the former agriculture minister.
Sources said there was a proper search of his office and some files were also seized. 
Speaker Govind Singh Kunjwal has served notices to nine rebel Congress MLA's seeking their responses by March 26 on why they should not be disqualified from the membership of the House for violating the party and alligning with the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party.
The former agriculture minister after receiving the notice has said that he was still in Congress but wanted the removal of the chief minister.
Nine Congress legislators led by Harak Singh had rebelled against the chief minister last week when they sought a vote division on the floor of the House. The speaker rejected the demand.

Uttarakhand's political upheaval show no sign of abating

. The news reports in March 2016 of political crisis in Uttarakhand State of India with claim of formation of Government being staked by BJP after nine or more Assembly members belonging to Congress Party look to have switched their loyalty. Obviously , a political turmoil seems to be there. These circumstances point to precise accuracy of this Vedic astrology writer’s prediction in article “ 2016 - a woeful year for India with slight cheer at the end” published on 18 January 2016 in online magazine thesop.org. Just reproducing the related text of the prediction from the article : “ February and March 2016 seem to be grim for a variety of concerns. Dissensions within parties and intra- parties may touch new heights , generating political or general turmoil necessitating change in leadership somewhere. Some fissures among the constituents of ruling parties may cause embarrassment and could perhaps lead to break up or separation unless timely precautions are taken. Among others , Uttarakhand may take a hint for precaution”.
