On Friday, Bhupesh Baghel, the chief minister of Chhattisgarh, attacked the Bhartiya Janata Party and said that JP Nadda was in the state to observe the development strategy used by the state’s Congress administration.

The BJP doesn’t fight alone; it employs central agencies like the ED, IT, and CBI, according to Baghel, who spoke to the media. “BJP comes here to learn our state model. Our initiatives have been copied by the Center.”

His comments followed those made by BJP head J P Nadda, who on Friday referred to the Congress as a “brother and sister” party while emphasizing that his party was opposed to dynastic culture.

In addition, the state head mocked the BJP for spending billions of dollars to construct a secretariat resembling a matchbox with windows rattling in the slightest breeze in the nation’s capital.

“Congress is a party of brother and sister,” Nadda said at a gathering in Raipur. “These days, Chief Minister Bhagel is traveling to ‘Bharat Jodo’ rallies. They need to first align their own party. Our struggle is against family politics.”

He said, “People like Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel are against progress and want to fill the treasuries of Congress. Our tribal brothers were slaughtered here, and CM Baghel was with Rahul Gandhi in Kerala. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has revolutionized conventional politics.

Friday morning saw Nadda’s arrival in Raipur. At the airport, BJP officials and supporters greeted him. He also organized a roadshow with party officials and members.

Nadda’s arrival also coincides with an uptick in national political activity. Rahul Gandhi, the party’s MP, led the Congress as it resumed its “Bharat Jodo Yatra” on Friday in the Tamil Nadu city of Nagercoil, which is part of the Kanyakumari district.

From Scott Christian College in Nagercoil to Azhagiyamandapam Junction in Tamil Nadu, the Yatra’s third day of travel started.

Rahul Gandhi will go on a 3,500-kilometer march from Kanyakumari to Kashmir that would take 150 days to complete and pass through up to 12 states.

On September 11, the Yatra will arrive in Kerala. Over the following 18 days, it will travel across the state, arriving in Karnataka on September 30. Before traveling farther north, it will spend 21 days in Karnataka.
