Sources aware of the development have informed that a similar faction of 3-4 MLAs of Health Minister T S Singhdeo camp is likely to visit Delhi soon.
As per sources of Republic Media Network, MLAs of the Bhupesh Baghel camp approached the National Capital to hold talks with the party heavyweights regarding the political changes taking place in the Chattisgarh Congress and to understand the party high command’s stand on it.

MLAs of both the camp have been keeping an eye on the National Capital and every movement of the Congress High command as the tussle for the chair of the Chattisgarh CM escalates to new heights. It should be noted that Health Minister TS Singh Deo had been long claiming his position in the reported two-and-a-half-year power-sharing formula between him and Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel.
Chattisgarh’s power-sharing formula
The Health Minister had been asserting that since the formation of the government it was promised to him that following half the tenure of the government there will be a shift in the position of the Chief Minister and that he will be then inducted in the post. However, CM Baghel after his recent visit to the National Capital displayed high spirits and confidence about his position in the party.
On the other hand, amid the political uncertainty over the reported power-sharing formula between the duo, Singh Deo recently maintained that the issue will be solved soon.”This question (power-sharing formula) comes up each time and everywhere, hence I believe that the solution will come soon,” Singh Deo had said replying to media persons.
