New Delhi: Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Friday called on former Congress president Rahul Gandhi. As soon as Rahul Gandhi left the house, CM Bhupesh Baghel was questioned about the change of leadership, but he easily avoided it. He said the development and schemes of the state have been discussed with Rahul Gandhi.
After the meeting, Congress Chhattisgarh in-charge PL Punia said media reports of tensions between Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel and Senior Minister TS Singh Deo were completely false. They share a good relationship. They meet each other naturally. Both have a lot of respect for each other. The news coming in the media is baseless.
“As far as the MLAs in Chhattisgarh are concerned, they met Casey Benugopal and me,” Punia said. If he wanted to show his strength, he would go to Rahul Gandhi. They didn’t do anything like that, they didn’t come here. It has nothing to do with the Chief Minister’s visit.
He further said that he wanted to give personal information to Chief Minister Rahul Gandhi. He told about the ongoing scheme in their state, Rahul Gandhi was impressed. The Chief Minister requested him to come to the state and see for himself. Accepting the invitation of the Chief Minister, he prepared to go to Chhattisgarh.
Leaders, including Congress MLAs and office bearers, are in the process of reaching Delhi. Many mayors and district presidents also arrived in Delhi on Friday. Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel has said that the government is safe. He has 70 MLAs. But the people’s question is still about the change of leadership. People are assuming that the whole exercise is being done to change the leadership in the state.
