Your time has come: Assam CM to Bhupesh Baghel
Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma on Wednesday continued his tirade against Chhattisgarh chief minister and Congress leader Bhupesh Baghel over the allegation that the latter accepted Rs508 crore bribe in the Mahadev betting app case, saying the Enforcement Directorate has given him time to contest the elections out of its "magnanimity" but "it will come" after the polls.
Taking a jibe at Bhagel's alleged intra-party rivalry with his deputy in the Chhattisgarh government, Sarma said "TS Singhdeo is the happiest right now with whatever is happening".
"Bhupesh Baghel knows that he is going to jail; He wants to take 10 others along with him...Right now, ED has not even come to him.
It will come after the elections. It is ED's large-heartedness that it has given time to Baghel to contest the elections," he was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
Sarma said ED had shown a "lot of magnanimity" by not asking Baghel to join the investigation before the Chhattisgarh elections.
