Sonia Gandhi asks Bhupesh Baghel to step down as Chhattisgarh CM: Sources

“Crisis in Chhattisgarh Congress is imminent, ithas resorted to fooling people as well as its own MPs and MLAs”, BJP MP Vijay Baghel.

New Delhi: Amid the current political crises in Chhattisgarh Congress, party chief Sonia Gandhi has reportedly asked Bhupesh Baghel to step down as state’s Chief Minister before November. As per a report by Repulic TV, Baghel has been asked to quit by the end of October.

CM Bhupesh Baghel had recently attended the Congress Working Committee (CWC) in New Delhi on Saturday, chaired by Sonia Gandhi.

“I am going to attend Congress Working Committee meeting on Saturday at 10 am, wherein upcoming Assembly elections, as well as organisational elections, will be discussed”, Baghel had said.

The infighting among the Chhattisgarh Congress have been attributed to Deo’s demands that he should be given top chairs according to a ration formula. Deo have publicly acknowledged to implement the rotational CM policy.


“It is a big decision and the high command will take into account several factors. People are talking about the 2.5-2.5 years formula. Even 2.5 years have elapsed. This is not a new thing. This has been discussed in the public domain”, he had said.

Meanwhile, reacting to the current development BJP Durg MP Vijay Baghel have said, “Crisis is always going on in Congress. They have always been confused and now they have turned desperate & tensed. The living example is Chhattisgarh. For the last four months, it has been going that Bhupesh Baghel will resign as 2.5 years of terms were fixed by Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi. Despite this, delay is going on for the past four months. Therefore, Bhupesh Baghel, Congress party and TS Deo who might be the new CM are in confusion. If Sonia Gandhi finally makes a decision on this then the confusing state of Chhattisgarh will end and people will express their opinions..”
