Dehradun (Uttarakhand) [India], July 23 (ANI): Former Uttarakhand Minister Navprabhat, who has been made the chairman of the manifesto committee and also a member of the core committee and the coordination committee of State Congress, has refused to take the post announced by the All India Congress Committee (AICC).
Speaking to ANI on Thursday, Navprabhat said that he has informed Congress state in-charge, Devendra Yadav, about his decision.
"I told the state in-charge that I had been President of this committee 3 times, this time this honour is too much. I urged him to reverse this order at his end. I will never compromise my dignity," he said.
