Meeting of Health Minister and MLA who made allegations in CM House
There was a meeting of Legislature Party at Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel’s residence. State in-charge PL Punia was also present here. Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel and Health Minister T.S. PL Punia was sitting in the middle of Singhdev. After some time, the accused Brihaspati Singh and Health Minister T.S. Singhdev’s picture came to the fore. The Health Minister came out and said that the MLA has spoken like this in emotion under pressure. There is talk of the party forum, I will not speak much on this. Health Minister TS Singhdev said no comment on Chief Minister’s formula for two and a half years.
Now what next?
Since the time the Congress government was formed in Chhattisgarh, the formula to remain Chief Minister for two-and-a-half years is being discussed. On June 17, 2021, two and a half years of Bhupesh Baghel have also been completed. Since then, the discussion of changing the leadership in the state has started. However, the Congress high command never spoke openly on this. Congress state in-charge PL Punia has definitely said many times that there is no formula for two and a half years. In such a situation, there are many questions which point to the developments in Chhattisgarh in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Punjab.
First question, has now the open rebellion against the Health Minister started. Second, is there no two-and-a-half-year formula left in the state? Thirdly, will the Health Minister remain silent like this even after so much humiliation or can a big decision be taken from his side too? All eyes are also on what will be the reaction of the fourth Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on this whole matter. Overall, in Chhattisgarh, the bugle of rebellion has now sounded, which people are now discussing how it will be handled.
