Dehradun: Uttarakhand CM�Harish Rawat will on Tuesday appear before the Central Bureau of Investigation in connection with�a sting operation probe in which he was allegedly shown offering bribe to rebel Congress MLAs to save his government.

Rawat has since then maintained his innocence in the matter and termed the entire episode as a conspiracy to tarnish his image.

The Centre revoked President's rule from Uttarakhand on May 11 after Harish Rawat proved his majority on the floor of the House. The Congress won by a margin of 33-28 in the floor test that took place on May 10.

The nine Congress rebels were barred from voting in the 71-member assembly.

The video shows Rawat indulging in horse trading a day before President's rule was imposed in Uttarakhand on March 27.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had alleged that the sting was proof of unfair means used by the Rawat regime to stay in power.
