Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel, who is the Congress observer for the election in Assam, took a swipe at the BJP over the rival party’s suspense on its chief ministerial candidate.

Mr Baghel at an election rally in Dibrugarh on Monday said the BJP is unable to announce a chief ministerial candidate due to “internal conflict”.

“An internal conflict has risen in BJP and that’s why they are not announcing the chief ministerial candidate’s name for the election,” Mr Baghel said.

“The BJP government has failed to control skyrocketing price rise. People are suffering. The Sarbananda Sonowal-led BJP government in Assam has failed in all the fronts and under their rule syndicate raj is mushrooming. The government is indulging in coal syndicate, among the major syndicates,” Mr Baghel said.

He was on a four-day visit to Upper Assam region, campaigning for Congress candidates.
