New Delhi: The suspense over new Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh was set to end today with several round of parleys in the national capital.
After the meeting with Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Mallikarjun Khadge (party’s observer in the state), senior party leaders of state Bhupesh Baghel, TS Singhdeo, Tamradwaj Sahu and Charandas Mahant returned to Raipur. Today evening, they were set to elect the leader of Congress legislature party in the state but again the issue has been deferred.
CM hopeful Tamradhwaj Sahu has threatened to resign from the party if not made the CM, News18 has reported quoting sources. Sahu is one of the four front-runners for the top post, along with state Chief Bhupesh Baghel, Leader of Opposition in the outgoing Assembly TS Singh Deo and former Union minister Charan Das Mahant.
Earlier, Congress president Rahul Gandhi tweeted this picture with four contenders for CM’s post — Anurag Singh Deo, Bhupesh Baghel, TS Baba, Charan Das Mahant and Tamradhwaj Sahu — with the words, “No matter how brilliant your mind or strategy, if youre playing a solo game, youll always lose out to a team.”

‘Many eligible candidates behind delay,’ says TS Singh Deo
Meanwhile, senior Congress leader in the state, TS Singh Deo said that there are more than one eligible name for the post of Chhattisgarh chief minister and that is why it is taking time.
Deo, one of the CM hopefuls for Chhattisgarh said, “We have more than one eligible name that is why process is taking time, in any case final result came late on 11th so it has just been four days today. BJP which took more than 7-8 days to appoint its recent CMs should not comment on us.”
Along with Deo, other contenders for the post are party’s state unit chief Bhupesh Baghel, Congress OBC wing’s chief Tamradhwaj Singh and former Union minister Chandras Mahant.
On December 11, Congress won 68 seats in the assembly elections and had secured more than two third majority in the 90 member Vidhan sabha.
