Later, Agarwal said the Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel must vacate the post and make way for Deo.
“TS Singh Deo waited for 2.5 yrs (to become CM) and now Bhupesh Baghel must vacate his seat. When there was no Congress government here, Deo and Baghel worked together. It’s due to them that Congress government came to power. When I was saying this, people of Kunkuri MLA attacked me,” said Agarwal.
