Infighting has become the new normal in the Congress party. After Rajasthan and Punjab, the grand-old-party is facing massive crisis in the state of Chhattisgarh where the present CM Bhupesh Baghel is reluctant to give up which chair for congress leader TS Singh Deo. Now, Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel has delayed his visit to Delhi despite the Congress high command summoning him amid the political crisis in the state.
The party top brass had reportedly asked CM Bhupesh Baghel to reach the national capital by Tuesday owing to his unwillingness to pave the way for TS Singh Deo's elevation as the CM. Moreover, sources indicated that the Sonia Gandhi-led party threatened to take strict action against Baghel if he doesn't budge from his stance and contemplated calling a meeting of the Legislative Party on the lines of Punjab.
Chhattisgarh Congress president Mohan Makram, some MLAs and other officials are likely to go to Delhi. On the other hand, Baghel will arrive in Lucknow at 10.30 am on Monday.
