Congress presser cancelled at nick of time;leaders ‘miffed’

Sources said Congress leaders including Dr Shiv Daharia, Ramdayal Uike, Shishupal Sori returned from the Congress Bhawan without the press meet as had been announced

In a rather embarrassing situation for the Chhattisgarh Congress, the party had convened a press conference on the issue of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes but the presser had to be cancelled because certain party leaders had become ‘upset’.

Sources said Congress leaders including Dr Shiv Daharia, Ramdayal Uike, Shishupal Sori returned from the Congress Bhawan without the press meet as had been announced.

The issue is said to be that while the leaders Dr Shiv Daharia, Ramdayal Uike, Shishupal Sori had intimated the press for conference, the leaders reached the Congress Bhawan to find that a presser is already ongoing that was being addressed by Rajya Sabha member Chhaya Verma.

Since the damage had been done, the party’s communications department Chairman Shailesh Nitin Trivedi went on appease the upset leaders.

Trivedi however said that it is an issue of minor confusion and that the issue would be sorted out at the earliest.
