To recall, earlier this month, Congress MLAs from Chhattisgarh camped in Delhi in an apparent show of strength in support of Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel amid speculations about a leadership change in the state. The MLAs had said that they wanted to meet AICC incharge of Chhattisgarh P L Punia and convey that Rahul Gandhi should extend the duration of his proposed tour to the state so that all MLAs can benefit from it.
However, many were viewing their Delhi visit as a show of strength in support of Baghel amid speculations over the possibility of a leadership change in Chhattisgarh where cabinet minister T S Singh Deo is vying for the chief minister’s post.
MLA Brihaspat Singh, who is known to be close to Baghel, told PTI, “We spoke to Punia ji on Sunday night and he mentioned the incident of Lakhimpur Kheri and said that now the meeting may be delayed. He will meet us when he next visits Raipur.”
