The former CM alleged that no work is possible in the state without paying a certain amount of money as commission. As a result, commission culture has been openly practiced in Uttarakhand.

Though I have been a chief minister and perhaps shouldn’t say this, “I have no reluctance in saying that when we were separated from Uttar Pradesh, up to 20 percent commission used to be paid there to get public works done.”

The BJP MP was quoted as saying, “After separation, it should have come to nil here, but the practise remained, and we began with 20%.”

Uttarakhand was separated from Uttar Pradesh in 2000 and emerged as a new state.

It’s a way of thinking. It will go away only when we start to think of our state as our own family, according to the former CM, who was quoted by a new agency.

In March last year, Tirath Singh Rawat, as the chief minister, became entangled in a Twitter uproar and controversy over his views on women wearing ripped jeans. Rawat said that young women have adopted a strange fashion, and he was shocked to see a mother in ripped jeans and boots on a flight carrying her children as well.

His comments spread like wildfire; hundreds of women, influencers, actors, and politicians slammed the BJP leader on Twitter, and #rippedjeans dominated the Twitter trends.
