Even as the BJP announced all of its candidates for the first phase of poll in Chhattisgarh, the Congress is yet to announce its candidates for seats in Rajnandgaon.
This is even when the Congress screening committee held a crucial meeting all night long through to Sunday morning.
But the speculation is that the list might be announced after Chhattisgarh visit of Congress chief Rahul Gandhi.
It need be mentioned that Congress leaders for now are focusing on making the Rahul Gandhi’s visit successful and thus might postpone the list announcement.
The meeting that was held till Sunday morning included screening committee chairperson Bhuvaneswar Kaleeta and state Congress leaders Bhupesh Baghel, TS Singhdeo and Charan Das Mahant.
Meanwhile amendments are also being made to Rahul Gandhi’s visit to Raipur.
It is now known that the SPG has objected to narrow lanes leading upto famed Mahamaya Mandir in Raipur and have raised security concerns.
They have said it is likely that temple visit might be given up and Rahul Gandhi will only address a gathering on his visit.>
