“Running out of issues, both Dr Raman Singh and Ajit Jogi getting personal by framing fake charges against me”
Congress will demand the asset details of Chief Minister, ministers, BJP leaders,” says Baghel.
Hours after the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) Chhattisgarh filed a first information report (FIR) against Chhattisgarh Pradesh Congress Committee (CPCC) President Bhupesh Baghel and his wife in a property scam, Baghel said that he is ready to face any investigation. Terming the FIR as fabricated to divert people’s attention from commission and corruption issues involving the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in the state, CPCC President said that Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh is trying to suppress the voices of the opposition Congress by leveling such false charges against him.
Baghel said that the piece of land that is in question has been measured on numerous occasions and land documents were verified by the State government in last 17 years and nothing wrong was found.
“All of a sudden the dragging of my name into property scam clearly indicates that the BJP government is working with vendetta,” Baghel said.
Challenging Dr Raman Singh, the CPCC President said that the State government can ask any investigation agency for the inquiry to satisfy Dr Raman’s political aide former Chief Minister Ajit Jogi. Baghel stated that he would come clean in investigation by any agency. “Since Congress has been questioning the credibility of former Chief Minister Ajit Jogi in caste issue, Jogi is getting personal by attacking me through false propaganda,” Baghel said.
Congress raised Priyadarshini Bank scam, Chhattisgarh Civil Supplies Corporation scam, coal block allotment scam, commission and other scams against ruling BJP government. After this episode, the Congress will firmly raise these scams and other public centric issues and the party will strongly fight against the BJP government, the CPCC President said.
The Congress has been raising only public centric issues as well as highlighting the failures of the BJP government on all fronts. Baffled by the growing popularity of the Congress in the state, Dr Raman Singh has targeted him personally in this case. Now the Congress would personally target the Chief Minister, ministers and BJP leaders by asking their property details, Baghel said.
After this episode, the Congress would now conduct 12000 Nukkad Sabhas (meetings) in place of 10,000 Nukkad Sabhas across the State on the commission issue, he added.
