CM Baghel visits Durg

Durg: Chief Minister and CPCC Chief Bhupesh Baghel was in Durg on Thursday. He made it clear that in his opinion no sitting MLA and Minister will contest Lok Sabha elections and youth should be given chance but decision of party high command will be final. Like Assembly elections party workers’ opinion will be given due consideration.

Replying to journalists query about comment of Leader Opposition Dharamlal Kaushik regarding Thailand visit of Health Minister T S Singhdeo, he said that it is prejudiced mentality. Kaushik should be asked as to why BJP authorities visited Thailand and erstwhile BJP government even sent journalists there on government expenditure. He targeted Prime Minister for dual policy by preventing purchase of rice from Central Pool.

Congress government has given relief to farmers by loan waiver as promised in manifesto. He said that he is going to write a letter to PMO for changing date of Prime Minister’s visit on February 8. He wants to attend the programme but Assembly Session will be under way. So it will be difficult to attend his programme. He paid courtesy visit to DCC President R N Verma.
