Chief Minister B C Khanduri will continue in the post in the event of the BJP returning to power in Uttarakhand in the assembly election, senior party leader Rajnath Singh said today.
"Khanduri will remain Chief Mnister if we form our own government," Singh, in-charge of party's election affairs in the hill state, told reporters here.
On Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid promising nine per cent sub-quota for Muslims in Uttar Pradesh, he accused the Congress of creating a wedge in society in the name of religion.
The BJP would oppose any such "unconstitutional" move, he asserted.
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's recent explanation to the Election Commission was also unprecedented, Rajnath Singh said.
He opposed the FDI in retail saying all the BJP-ruled states would not allow this.
Rajnath asked the Centre to make public the report of Henderson Brookes panel which went into the 1962 Sino-India conflict.
"In terms of strategic policy, this report is very important which will tell us what exactly happened in the war," he said.
The BJP leader said it was unfortunate that India had to take permission from China for conducting Mansarovar Yatra in Tibet.
This was a direct fallout of "bad policies" of the successive Congress governments at the Centre, he said.
Meanwhile, Rajnath also sought an explanation from Congress president Sonia Gandhi on the Batla House encounter controversy.
"At one hand, Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh is describing the encounter as fake, on the other hand, the Prime Minister and the Home minister have described it as genuine. In such a scenario, Sonia Gandhi must give an explanation to clarify the party's stand," he said.
