Shaktiman issue:Don’t want to start fresh controversy

Clearing the state government’s stand on the controversy of removing the statue of Shaktiman and the reasons behind not unveiling it, CM Harish Rawat on Wednesday said that the decision to not unveil Shaktiman’s statue was his alone since he did not want to start any fresh controversy.


“We have been trying to restore our relationship with the Centre and I did not want to create a fresh controversy”, Rawat said at a media briefing on Wednesday.”A new statue of Shaktiman with a better design will be unveiled in due course. A park dedicated to statehood activists with their statues would also be planned,” added Rawat referring to the recent criticism over constructing statues of Shaktiman but had ignored activists who had fought for the state.
