Chhattisgarh MLA visits in Delhi to Meet Party Leader

Chhattisgarh MLA visits in Delhi to Meet Party Leader.

Amid the ongoing dispute in the Chhattisgarh Congress, a group of members of the state’s MLA arrived in Delhi to meet with the party’s high command. The group, however, has ruled out the possibility of a leadership change in the state unit.

About a dozen MLAs, including Ramanujganj MLA Brihaspat Singh, a close associate of Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel who had accused the state Minister of Health TS Singh Deo of plotting his assassination, are camping in Delhi to meet with Chhattisgarh in charge of AICC, PL Punia.

When asked if their visit was aimed at expressing support for Baghel amid rumors about the leadership change, Singh said they wanted to convey to the high command that senior leader Rahul Gandhi should extend the duration of his proposed tour. He said there was no possibility of a leadership change.

However, when contacted, Punia said he was in Lucknow and had no information about the MLA camp in Delhi, as none of them had contacted him. He said he had no plans to return to Delhi for at least a week.

CM Baghel, responding to questions in Delhi, said: “Not everything should be seen as politically motivated. Anyone can go anywhere; they can go meet friends. Since these are people who work with the party, they may want to meet their leaders. However, when Punia ji is not in Delhi, how are they going to meet him? ”
