Abhi Dilli door hai, says CM
Raipur: Dr Raman Singh, who has been ruling Chhattisgarh for a record 15 years in its 18-year history, feels he still has a lot to do in the state and Delhi is far away for him as of now.
Singh said he is fully satisfied with his three terms as the chief minister and he has been getting a lot of love from the people of the state.
“As of now, I believe that ‘Dilli door hai’ (Delhi is far away). It’s a pleasure to work here in Chhattisgarh and there is a lot to work here,” Singh said in an interview.
He was replying to questions on what role does he see for himself in the next phase of his political career and whether it would include shifting to Delhi for a national-level stint.
There have been talks in some quarters that Singh and a few other senior BJP leaders from various states may be shifted to the Centre, though there has been no official word on this from the ruling party or its top leaders.
Confident of winning his fourth term as chief minister, Singh said the state polls might have some impact on the Lok Sabha election next year but it should not be seen as a referendum on the Narendra Modi government at the Centre.
