Senior Congress leader Harish Rawat, torn between his karmabhoomi and janmabhoomi, today said that he will request the party leadership to relieve him of the responsibility of the party's Punjab affairs in-charge as he wants to dedicate his efforts for his home state of Uttarakhand.

As per news report of NDTV, "Things are getting fraught. As the polls will approach, I will have to devote time to both places (Punjab and Uttarakhand go to polls early next year)," he said in a Facebook post. While the Congress is seeking to retain power in Punjab, it aims to return to power by defeating the ruling BJP in the hill state. It was in late August that he first made a similar request, though at the time he said "if the party asks me to continue (as Punjab affairs in-charge), I will continue," said Mr Rawat. This time, however, he seems determined. "I have made up my mind that I will request the party leadership to allow me to dedicate myself completely to Uttarakhand. Therefore, the party should relieve me of my responsibilities in Punjab," the leader said.
