The Hitavada State Bureau,


After being allocated party ticket for the Chhattisgarh Assembly Elections by the core committee of Janta Congress Chhattisgarh (Jogi) from Kota, Dr Renu Jogi on Friday filed nomination in the midst of large number of party workers on Friday. Also present on the occasion was Marwahi MLA Amit Jogi. 

It is worth mentioning here that after being denied ticket from the Indian National Congress, sitting Congress MLA from Kota, Dr Renu Jogi had written a touching letter to former AICC President and Congress Parliamentary Party Leader Sonia Gandhi on Thursday, announcing her decision of contesting from Kota as a Janta Congress Chhattisgarh (Jogi) candidate.

In her letter to Sonia Gandhi, Dr Renu Jogi while mentioning how she was tormented by the present Congress leadership in the state, she stated that after Ajit Jogi constituted his new political outfit after parting ways with Congress, her detractors in the present Congress leadership targeted her repeatedly. False and fake complaints were circulated against her by Congress leaders but she never reacted. She said she was removed from the post of Deputy Leader of Opposition and through fake CDs, the Congress leaders tried to insult her husband and her son. Despite all these agony, she continued her service to the party with utmost loyalty.

Adding that she had nurtured the constituency of Kota like her family member by her simplicity, sacrifice and loyalty was taken as conspiracy and she was denied Congress ticket with an intention to wipe out her very existence. Since, there is no leader left in the Congress to judge the significance, self-respect and sacrifice of a committed woman party worker like her, she decided to contest from Kota just to prove that truth remains quiet but that doesn’t mean that truth has been defeated. Henceforth, she was issued party ticket from Janta Congress Chhattisgarh (Jogi) and she filed her nominations accordingly on Friday. It is worth mentioning here that Congress has fielded Vibhor Singh from Kota Assembly segment.
