#Dehradun #Uttarakhand Uttarakhand Congress MLAs loyal to Satpal Mahararj on Friday rubbished speculation that they might also quit the party to follow their leader, saying the Pauri Garhwal MP's decision to join BJP was personal and they were still with the party.

Asked if he was among half a dozen MLAs who as per media reports were likely to follow their leader and quit Congress, Godiyal said there was no room for any "ifs and buts when it came to their loyalty to their party."
