Raipur, Dec 16 : Chhatisgarh Congress president Bhupesh Baghel was declared as the state’s chief minister on Sunday. The decision was taken in a meeting of the Congress Legislature Party (CLP) in Raipur where Baghel was elected by Congress MLAs.

Bhupesh Baghel is credited with playing a crucial role in a landslide victory of the Congress in Chhattisgarh.

Baghel and three other contenders for the top post had met Congress chief Rahul Gandhi at his Tughlaq Lane home in Delhi on Saturday. Gandhi held hectic parleys with the four leaders : Mr Baghel, TS Singh Deo, Tamradhwaj Sahu, Bhupesh Baghel and Charan Das Mahant .

Punia said the meeting of the newly-elected lawmakers will be held at 12 p.m on Sunday and the name of the new Chief Minister will be announced thereafter.

Earlier in the day, Gandhi tweeted a picture of himself flanked by all the four claimants to the post, hinting at the end of tussle over who would be the next Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh.

Posting pictures of Baghel, Deo, Sahu and 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 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.
