New Delhi : Chhattisgarh Health Minister TS Singh Deo arrived in Delhi on Monday for what he called a “personal visit”, even as speculations remained rife over a shift in power in Chhattisgarh in the wake of Punjab rejig.
Deo arrived in Delhi, and said he has not sought any meetings with the party leadership.
He also said former Punjab chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh should keep the interest of Congress party in mind before taking any decision.
Deo categorically denied having any meetings scheduled with the Congress leadership.
“I was in Delhi four days ago as well, I am here on a personal visit. As you know, none of the party high command is here,” he said, denying that he had any meetings with Congress leaders.
“Everything is normal in Chhattisgarh. All the issues that were there have been resolved,” he said.
Asked about the situation in Punjab and if he had any advice for the Amarinder Singh, Deo said: “He is very senior to us, I cannot give him any advice, but I would only say that he should keep the interest of Congress party in mind”.
He also said that the Congress may appear to be weak at present, but the future belongs to the Congress.
In Congress ruled Chhattisgarh, as the Bhupesh Baghel-led government in Chhattisgarh completed two-and-a-half years in office in June, supporters of TS Singh Deo raised the issue of rotational chief ministership.
Last month, amid the power tussle, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel, along with Deo, met former Congress president Rahul Gandhi and the party denied any change of guard in the state.
In Punjab, after months of power tussle between the former chief minister and party chief Navjot Singh Sidhu, Singh decided to step down saying he was feeling “humiliated”, and warned the party against appointing Sidhu as the chief minister.
