After the resignation of the Captain in Punjab, now eyes are on Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh, the tension of Gehlot and Baghel will increase.
In Punjab, Captain Amarinder Singh has resigned from the post of Chief Minister. With this, all eyes are now fixed on Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh, where the Congress government is there. Like Punjab, the political tussle is going on in these two states too. Congress leader Sachin Pilot in Rajasthan wants him to be given the top post in the state and TS Singhdeo in Chhattisgarh wants rotational chief minister 2.5-2.5 years chief minister's formula should be respected.
In Rajasthan, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has been avoiding the decision of the high command to accommodate the Sachin Pilot camp and in Chhattisgarh, Bhupesh Baghel mobilized more than 50 MLAs in Delhi in the past to show his strength. The Congress leadership is angry with the Chief Ministers in both the states disregarding the decisions of the Congress leadership. With the resignation of the Captain in Punjab, the Congress has also given a strong message to these two Chief Ministers.
Congress in charge of Rajasthan Ajay Maken had said on Thursday that the roadmap is ready for cabinet expansion and organizational reshuffle in the state. . He said this in a press conference on Thursday.
The Congress leader said that Gehlot is still unwell and doing his work from home and as soon as he recovers, cabinet expansion and organizational reshuffle will be done. When asked about Sachin Pilot, he said that at the state level we are discussing all the issues, but if anything is given at the AICC level then it is beyond my scope.
Similarly, supporters of TS Singhdev in Chhattisgarh are insisting on changing the chief minister after the completion of two and a half years in power of Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel. The issue of the rotational chief minister remains a mystery as there is no clarity on it from the top leadership. Emphasizing the rotational chief minister's formula, Singhdeo has said that everything is within the purview of the party leadership and whatever decision is taken will be accepted.
