Chhattisgarh Health Minister and Congress leader TS Singh Deo on Monday rebuffed speculations of him meeting Congress bigwigs in Delhi today. Deo, who is in the national capital today said all the issues within the party had been resolved. Addressing the media upon arriving at the Delhi airport, Deo today said, "It is completely a personal tour. I have come to Delhi for my sister's birthday. As you know, none of the party high command is here."
"Everything is normal in Chhattisgarh. All the issues that were there have been resolved," he further said.
Deo's visit to Delhi comes amid an ongoing power tussle in the ruling Congress in Chhattisgarh. It was earlier reported Deo was likely to meet the Congress high command during his visit to the national capital.
After the Bhupesh Baghel-led government in Chhattisgarh completed two-and-a-half years in office in June, the supporters of TS Singh Deo had raised the issue of rotational chief ministership.
Though Congress never talked about the two-and-a-half-year formula in Chhattisgarh, the supporters of Deo claim that this was promised.
The health minister while demanding a change of guard in the state had said that he would accept whatever decision was taken by the party high command.
