Bhupesh Baghel writes to CM; raises questions on manner of Jhiram probe
With election ahead and certainty that state Congress would contest the poll under the leadership of Bhupesh Baghel, the leader has decided to go offensive on Jhiram Ghati naxal attack issue against incumbent government.
Bhupesh Baghel, in a letter written to the Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh, raised question on the role of the state government in probing the incident.
He also took on the various other claims of the state government in this episode. While he pointed out that state government had claimed surrender of naxals involved in the Jhiram Ghati naxal attack, Baghel questioned why none of the admissions from these naxals were made public or were missing from the NIA probe report.
He however reposed faith in the working of the judicial commission probing the attack and added that conspiracy angle must also be included.
It remains to be seen how the state government and ruling party come up to counter this narrative.
