Health Minister informed that the procedure of the meeting is the same which used to take place five years back. This time meeting was finalised by Ravindra Choubey, but since he was not well, he could not come to CM’s house. This meeting was already fixed and Kumari Selja has called that she will be arriving here on May 16. There were confidential discussions about the elections and the election strategy cannot be made public.
Discussions held about ED action as well:
About change in organizational leadership, Singh Deo informed that not a single word on this was discussed. About annoyance by few leaders, Singh Deo said that when they left for lunch with CM Baghel, at that time Home Minister Tamradhwaj Sahu came out, as he has to go out for some other programme.
We have seen what has happened in Karnataka polls and after that in Chhattisgarh saw that in CSC (NAN) scam a foreign account was formed. At that time no action was taken by ED and on the other hand BJP also took a stay from the Court. Dharamlal Kaushik hindered the investigations. Therefore BJP just do not have no moral right to hold talks on corruption. Discussions were held in the meeting about misutilization of ED and that pressure is being created and those taken into remand are being forced to sign and speak against the present government and are being openly harassed.
