The Day After - - STATES / DIARY -

Put­ting spec­u­la­tion to rest Ch­hat­tis­garh Jaanata Congress chief Ajit Jogi has an­nounced to con­test the up­com­ing state as­sem­bly polls from the Ra­j­nandgaon con­stituency. The for­mer Chief Min­is­ter of Ch­har­ris­garh said that he is go­ing to con­test from Ra­j­nandgaon con­stituency not from his tra­di­tional Mar­wahi seat. He even an­nounced his daugh­ter in-law Richa Jogi as Ra­j­nanandgaon dis­trict chief. Ru­mors about Jogi con­test­ing from Mar­wahi started to pro­lif­er­ate when his son Amit Jogi told re­porters that he won’t come in be­tween Mar­wahi and his father as the seat has been close to his father and the peo­ple of Mar­wahi have spe­cial feel­ings about the first CM of the state.

Miffed with Congress high-com­mand ne­glect, Jogi has floated his own party which has an­nounced can­di­dates for around 36 seats. How­ever, nei­ther Amit Jogi nor his daugh­ter in-law Richa Jogi fig­ures in this list, which re­flects that Jogi may con­test from Mar­wahi too.
