Dehradun, Jan 27: Uttarakhand Congress Committee Secretary Harish Dhami on Monday resigned from his post bringing infighting in the party's unit to the fore.
Dharchula MLA Dhami said he resigned from the post as the new members of the Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) were given more importance despite the fact that they have never won an election.
The new PCC team announced on Saturday includes almost all main party leaders.
Dhami, known to be a close aide of AICC general secretary and former chief minister Harish Rawat, is a three-time MLA from Dharchula seat in Pithoragarh district.
He denied that Rawat told him to step down from the post.
"Harish Rawat is no doubt my guru but I take my own decisions," Dhami said.
