Nainital: The nine dissident Congress MLAs yesterday told the Uttarakhand High Court that they had not left the party but only wanted removal of the Chief Minister and his government so that a "better" regime can be formed under another leader.
They told Justice UC Dhyani that they were not against the Congress and only wanted to "clean it" up as they felt that the regime under former Chief Minister Harish Rawat "did not show the party in a good light."
Appearing for the MLAs, senior advocate C A Sundaram argued that dissenting against the government by a member of the ruling party was part of a "healthy democracy" and would not amount to leaving the party or defection."
