Amidst the ongoing factionalism within the Chhattisgarh unit in Congress, a big decision is expected around Navratri, sources said.
The demand for a change of guard reared its head in Chhattisgarh after Baghel completed two-and-a-half years as chief minister in June 2021.
The camp of cabinet minister T S Singhdeo has claimed that the high command in 2018 had agreed to hand over the post to him after the government completed half its term.
Amid the rumours that there may be a change in CM, Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel’s camp has become active.
Legislator Brihaspati Singh claimed that 35 MLAs will reach Delhi soon and won’t return without meeting the top leadership.
The number of Congress MLAs known to be close to Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel who are camping in Delhi is rising with more legislators reaching the national capital.
The development is being viewed by many as a show of strength but sources in the Baghel camp insisted that the MLAs were reaching Delhi on their own accord and there was no show of strength going on.
