Mathura Dutt Joshi, state Congress general secretary, said the cabinet decisions of providing three free LPG cylinders annually to 1.84 lakh Antyodaya cardholders in the state and giving farmers a Rs 20 bonus per quintal of wheat are clear violations of the model code of conduct. “The Dhami government is clearly misusing its administrative machinery to influence voters in the Champawat area,” he said.
Garima Dasauni, state Congress media in charge, said the cabinet decisions were Dhami’s attempts to maximize the chances of his victory in the Champawat assembly byelection. “Such populist decisions show how Dhami is apprehensive about his victory in Champawat and how he is taking the help of such decisions to influence the voters,” she said.

Within one and a half months of the formation of the government, this decision has been taken with a view to benefiting the people of the weaker sections and it will lessen the difficulties in their lives.”
