Congress leaders are closing in to appease Chhabindra Karma who went ahead and bought nomination form as an independent candidate.
This is amid the reports that Congress might field Devati Karma, Chhabindra Karma’s mother, as its candidate.
It is also said that even Devati Karma has purchased nomination form for candidature from the Dantewada seat.
But the Congress leaders including Bhupesh Baghel made an effort to persuade Chhabindra Karma to withdraw.
Even Konta MLA Kawasi Lakhma is also joining in the efforts of the Congress party.
The Congress is looking to avoid a mother-son electoral contest in the Dantewada legislative seat.>
