Bhopal: First chief minister of Chhattisgarh and Congress Working Committee (CWC) member Ajit Jogi on Thursday dropped enough hints to snap his decades old ties with the party and float a regional outfit.

“I have been left with no options but to quit Congress and explore formation of a new party that alone will ensure ‘Raman Singh-Mukt’ Chhattisgarh in the next Assembly elections”, Mr Jogi, who was apparently upset over denial of Rajya Sabha ticket by the party, told reporters in his Raipur residence.

 

He also claimed that 15 out of 38 Congress MLAs in the state have been in touch with him. Speculation had been rife for last six months on his leaving party after his MLA son Amit was expelled from Congress.
