Madhya Pradesh will not have any deputy chief minister. Earlier today in the day, posters had come up outside Congress office in Bhopal congratulating Kamal Nath on becoming the chief minister even before the official announcement was made.
The suspense over who would be the chief minister of Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh is still on. Reports say Congress President Rahul Gandhi may announce the same tomorrow.
Even as Congress fought the ruling BJP in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, it had its own fair share of internal battles. In Madhya Pradesh, swords were drawn between Digvijaya Singh and Jyotiraditya Scindia over candidate selection while Scindia and Kamal Nath supporters indulged in poster-wars.
In Rajasthan, too, Congress leaders Sachin Pilot and Ashok Gehlot, both frontrunners in the race to the post of chief minister, had their own share of infighting. We had earlier reported that Congress workers had clashed in Chhattisgarh showing their support to their preferred leader for the post of the chief minister.
