Raipur. According to sources, Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel survived the attempts to topple him. Bhupesh Baghel has got temporary relief after Priyanka Gandhi's intervention. There is no threat to him till the Uttar Pradesh elections.
Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel held a meeting with Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi for about two and a half hours and discussed many issues. After this, he gave his statement to the media that everything is fine. We discussed many things with Rahul Gandhi, and I have invited him to come to Chhattisgarh. He will be on a visit to Chhattisgarh in the next week. The tour will be for three days.
Bhupesh Baghel explained to both the leaders that everything is fine in Chhattisgarh. He has the support of more than 70 MLAs, and there is a favourable atmosphere in the state. In such a situation, in the next elections, the party can come back to power. However, if he is no longer the Chief Minister, then the party's chances become weak.
He invited Rahul Gandhi to come to Chhattisgarh and talked about experiencing and understanding all the circumstances himself. Rahul Gandhi has accepted the invitation. He will be on a visit to Chhattisgarh after the coming week.
With this, the political instability of the last two and a half years came to a halt. All the MLAs who reached New Delhi said that they will accept the decision of the high command. Although, some ministers declared that they are with Bhupesh Baghel. Some MLAs also said that changing the chief minister will not be in the interest of the state.
Chief Minister Baghel may reshuffle the cabinet. He is likely to drop some poor-performing faces.
