New Delhi, Dec 15: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday hinted at the end of tussle for the Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh, tweeting a picture of himself flanked by all the four claimants to the post.

Posting pictures of the four contenders in the race for the CM post– Bhupesh Baghel, T.S. Singh Deo, Tamradhwaj Sahu and Charan Das Mahant — Gandhi quoted American internet entrepreneur Reid Hoffman saying: “No matter how brilliant your mind or strategy, if you’re playing a solo game, you’ll always lose out to a team.”

The party is likely to announce the Chhattisgarh Chief Minister tomorrow.

Baghel, the state party chief, is said to be the frontrunner in the race.

Gandhi’s tweet follows his hectic parleys with Chhattisgarh leaders, along with UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Mallikarjun Kharge, party’s observer for Chhattisgarh, and P.L. Punia, who is in-charge in the state.

The Congress President had earlier tweeted similar pictures of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister-designate Kamal Nath and his rival claimant to the post Jyotiraditya Scindia as well as Rajasthan Chief Minister-designate Ashok Gehlot and his state party chief Sachin Pilot who has been named as the Deputy Chief Minister.

Before the announcements of Kamal Nath and Gehlot as the respective Chief Ministers, there had been power jockeying between the rival camps, with both Scindia and Pilot strongly advocating their stake to the post.

Government is responsible for giving wrong facts to Supreme Court: Kapil Sibal

Published

on

New Delhi, Dec 15: Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Saturday targetted the Narendra Modi for giving wrong facts to the Supreme Court on the Rafale deal. 

“Government is responsible for giving wrong facts to the Supreme Court, he said while addressing a press conference in the national capital.

“The Supreme Court is not an appropriate forum because it cannot summon and examine file notings, witnesses on oath, including questioning the Prime Minister, and we need to question the Prime Minister”.

Continuing his attack, the former union minister said: “When Supreme Court is not examining technicality, pricing of the Rafale deal, how is government claiming victory?”

“When I read the Supreme Court judgement, in almost every para there was a reference to press reports”, he added.

The Congress leader further said that there is a need to ask the Attorney General to the PAC and get the issues clarified as to why an affidavit was submitted which did not reflect facts.

He described the Rafale deal as a highly sensitive issue and stated: “It will be discussed in the Parliament too”.

Sibal persisted his demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee probe into the matter.

“The BJP govt can oppose all they want, but JPC will be formed to investigate Rafale scam”, he stated.

The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed all the pleas seeking court-monitored probe into the purchase of Rafale jet fighters holding that the decision-making process was not in doubt.

The bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said it cannot go into the question of pricing and choice of offset Indian partner by the French aircraft manufacturer Dassault.
