Raipur/ New Delhi. The high-voltage political drama that the power tussle of Baghel and Singh Deo has triggered, continues, as more than 30 party MLAs assembled here flying in a chartered plane from Raipur, apparently to show strength of Chief minister Bhupesh Baghel.
A rustic and seasoned politician, Bhupesh Baghel yesterday, purposefully demonstrated his might in Raipur by assorting supporters in hundreds upon his return. However Singh Deo remained silent, waiting for the future turn of events.
Meanwhile, after Baghel showed is strength in Raipur, more than 30 party MLAs flew to Delhi in a chartered plane today, to exhibit their solidarity with the Chief Minister. in the midst of this political drama, Chhattisgarh in-charge of the party PL Punia hurriedly clarified in a statement to a news channel in New Delhi that the high command had not called any MLA to Delhi. State Congress chief Mohan Markam also echoed similar statement, saying that the party high command did not call any MLA to Delhi.
However, it is likely that Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel would visit Delhi on Friday morning. Congress President Sonia Gandhi might hold another meeting with top party leaders along with Baghel and Singh Deo. Albeit Singh Deo has denied that there was any rigid formula of 2.5 years of power sharing, he did not negate the chances of party high command taking any sudden decision to gven him a new responsibility. Now all eyes are on the meeting of Sonia Gandhi, which might well change the entire course of action in Chhattisgarh.
