Just a day before the first phase of elections in Chhatisgarh, state Congress had to face a massive jolt as the vice-president of the party in the state Ghanaram Sahu resigned from the party.

The VP of state unit of the Congress said that he was “mentally harassed” by state party president Bhupesh Baghel over personal differences. “Although I am a Congress office bearer, I was not given a role to play in various activities organised before the election. I have always been a dedicated member of the party, but everything has a limit. As the state Congress chief has been trying to drive me out of the party for some time now, I have decided to resign as state vice-president and give up its primary membership”, said Sahu in the letter.

Last month, Congress had to face a similar blow when Chhattisgarh Pradesh Congress Committee working president Ramdayal Uike decided to quit the party and joined the BJP. He was tha MLA from Pali who was an influential tribal leader in the state.

Meanwhile, the Congress party has dubbed it as a conspiracy of BJP. Congress communication head and spokesperson Shailesh Nitin Trivedi said, “The BJP knows that they are losing the elections, thus this type of trading of leaders is going on. We have seen earlier the Ramdayal Uike episode and now Sahu is the second leader who fell into the BJP’s trap”.

Earlier, the Congress failed to form an alliance with the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) for the assembly elections as the latter decided to ally with Ajit Jogi’s Janata Congress Chhattisgarh (J). This move by BSP was also a big disappointment for the Congress.

The first phase of the Chhattisgarh Polls was held on Novemebr 12 which covered 18 constituencies which is a naxal-dominated area.

The polling for the remaining 72 seats will take place on November 20, and the votes will be counted on December 11.
