Chhattisgarh: Ruckus in Congress office as the party releases list of final candidates for upcoming elections

Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Telangana, Rajasthan and Mizoram are scheduled to go for elections in the coming weeks.

Protests erupted at the Chhattisgarh Congress office yesterday after the party released the last list of candidates for the upcoming legislative assembly elections. The announcement of candidates has upset many within the party which has led to tension in the office.

As per sources, angry supporters of Ejaz Dhabar, who has been denied a ticket from Raipur South constituency, started creating a ruckus and vandalised Congress office. Dhabar was considered a strong candidate, but the ticket was given to Kanhaiya Agarwal, which angered his supporters. Few days back, a video had gone viral in which Dhabar was reportedly seen threatening Chhattisgarh Congress in-charge P L Punia that if he is denied a ticket, he will create a disturbance.

As per reports, party workers also created a ruckus in Bilaspur office over ticket distribution. Among those who are denied tickets is Dr Renu Jogi, wife of former chief minister Ajit Jogi, following which she has joined her husband’s Janata Congress Chhattisgarh.
