Ashok Gehlot, Bhupesh Baghel Appointed Congress’ Senior Observers For Gujarat, Himachal Polls

Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel have been appointed by Congress as senior observers of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh, where assembly polls are scheduled to take place in the latter half of the year.

Ashok Gehlot, who had been in charge as general secretary of Gujarat in the past, will be the senior observer for the Western state. Chhattisgarh minister T S Singh Deo and former Union minister Milind Deora will assist Mr Gehlot as observers. Raghu Sharma is the All India Congress Committee in-charge of Gujarat. Sharma was earlier a minister in Gehlot government.

Bhupesh Baghel, on the other hand, will be in charge of Himachal Pradesh. Senior Rajasthan leader Sachin Pilot and leader of the Opposition in Punjab assembly Partap Singh Bajwa will assist Baghel for Himachal Pradesh assembly elections.

By appointing the two sitting Chief Ministers as in-charge of poll-bound state, the grand old party is trying to send a message that it is serious about the two state elections. In the states that had gone to polls this year, the party had lost all five states- Uttar Pradesh, Goa, Punjab, Uttarakhand and Manipur.
