Phone tapping of opposition leaders and bureaucrats was also done. What will Sai and former Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh will tell on it?,” said Baghel.

Vishnudeo Sai’s question to CM
Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel had alleged that there is an attempt to destabilise his government while talking to media two days back and thus the central government is tapping his phone. After this, Chhattisgarh BJP President Sai had asked questions to the Chief Minister through the media. Sai asked BhupeshBaghel about the reasons for which their phones are being tapped. If his ministers and MLAs are doing any immporal act, asked Sai. If yes then Baghel should take action against them, said Sai. Why Chief Minister is afraid of phone tapping if he is not doing any wrong act, said Sai.

After all Narayan Rane, Himanta Biswa Sarma, Mukul Roy were all in Opposition and ED, IT case was made against them. After their joining of BJP, they were given clean-chit, said the Chief Minister. And now take the case of Hardik Patel and everyone knows why he has left the Congress.
Center challenged on Agneepath, it has to be withdrawn
Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel said, like three black laws of Agriculture, Centre has to withdraw ‘Agneepath’ yojana. RahulGandhi had demanded its withdrawal. Farmers were declared terrorists during their agitation against agriculture laws, said the Chief Minister. This country belongs to farmers and soldiers. Former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri gave the slogan ‘Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan’. But this government first crushed the farmers and now there is plan to crush the soldiers.
