Central Chronicle News
Raipur, Apr 05:

Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and former Chief Minister Dr. Raman Singh on Wednesday launched a scathing attack on the Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh, Bhupesh Baghel, over his recent statement on the Nagrik Apurti Nigam (NAN) scam investigation. Speaking to section of journalists at his residence, Dr. Singh criticized Baghel’s lack of awareness regarding the investigation and called for him to thank the Prime Minister for the ED’s involvement in the case.
Dr. Singh accused Baghel of not presenting the complete facts of the case in his statement and suggested that the Chief Minister’s attention is only on the ED’s raids on certain individuals, rather than the agency’s broader investigation. He also pointed out that it was he who had written a letter to the Prime Minister requesting ED’s involvement in the NAN case, and that Baghel should be grateful for the progress made in the investigation.
Dr. Singh also had a dig on the ongoing turmoil within the Congress party in the state and claimed that Baghel wants the State President to be changed for his own comfort as the difference of opinion has created division within the Chhattisgarh Congress.
Regarding the # campaign launched by the Congress, the former CM also expressed his disapproval of Rahul Gandhi’s recent comments on the judiciary and suggested that he should apologize to the people of the country.
On the issue of reservation, Dr. Singh stated that his party’s thinking is positive and that the subject will be progressed based on the opinion of the Governor and the judicial process. He also urged caution in light of the increasing cases of COVID-19 in the country and called for the health department and general public to take necessary precautions.
The former Chief Minister’s comments are likely to fuel the fire on the ongoing political tussle in Chhattisgarh, as the state gears up for the upcoming assembly elections later this year. It remains to be seen how Baghel and other Congress leaders will respond to Dr. Singh’s criticism.
