Thumbs down for 52 Cong MLAs over the poor show in Lok Sabha polls in Chhattisgarh
By Indian Express 10-Jun-2019
The hopes of over 50 Congress MLAs who kept their aspirations high for getting placed in the government-owned corporations and boards stand shattered following the decision taken by the Congress executive committee.
Senior leaders from AICC who attended the introspection meetings for Lok Sabha elections defeat stood by the party’s declaration. There are 68 Congress legislators in the 90-member House.
Including the chief minister Bhupesh Baghel, there are 12 ministers with one post lying vacant, which might go to the party legislator who could outsmart others in the race. Not just the Congress MLAs but those party candidates who lost the polls would also be excluded from getting such posts, as the party believed they already were offered the opportunity.
At least 126 plum posts in the state corporations and boards beside the 200-odd posts in various government committees are to be filled up. With just 15 MLAs BJP suffered a humiliating defeat in the Assembly election. But the saffron party bounced back in the Lok Sabha polls winning 9 of 11 seats in Chhattisgarh.
क्या कांग्रेस का महागठबंधन से अलग रह के चुनाव लड़ने की वजह से बीजेपी को पूर्ण बहुमत मिला है?
