On Chhattisgarh CM’s chair, Bhupesh Baghel says rotation only for coalition govts.

The Congress High Command is yet to take a call on a change of guard in Chhattisgarh but Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel Sunday signalled his position on the issue by saying that any agreement to rotate chief ministers is a feature of coalition governments while his party has a three-fourth majority in Chhattisgarh.

Speaking to reporters after meeting AICC leaders in Delhi, including Priyanka Gandhi Vadra at the residence of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Baghel also said that it is up to the High Command to take decisions on appointment and removal of chief ministers.

Meanwhile, sources close to Chhattisgarh Health Minister T S Singh Deo, who was in the race for the Chief Minister’s post in 2018 and is the contender again now, said they are “hopeful” of his chances since the party leadership has not yet made up its mind.
