DEHRADUN: In the backdrop of Amit Shah's Haridwar visit, deposed chief minister Harish Rawat today took a swipe at him, saying the BJP president had chosen the right place to "atone for his sin" after "murdering democracy" in Uttarakhand.

"By toppling the government in Uttarakhand he (Shah) has murdered democracy. And now he has come to the right place to atone for his sin.

"The holy waters of the Ganga can hopefully absolve him of his sin," Rawat told reporters after offering a flower wreath on the statue of Babasahab Bhim Rao Ambedkar here on his 125th birth anniversary.

Rawat made the remark when asked by reporters about the BJP President's visit to Haridwar where he participated in a programme to mark the Dalit icon's birth anniversary.
