Breaks on speculation, Ajit Jogi said that the matter of coalition not being with Mayawati

Former Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh and supremo Ajit Jogi of the Janata Congress, Chhattisgarh, has bridged the speculation of combating Bahujan Samaj Party to contest elections. Former Chief Minister Ajit Jogi, in a special conversation with News 18, said that his family meeting with BSP supremo Mayawati has only happened. It should not be politically understood. The alliance was being speculated after a nearly hour-long meeting between Ajit Jogi and Mayawati on Wednesday in Delhi.

Ajit Jogi said that our party will contest the 90 seats in Chhattisgarh. There is no scope for coalition and neither is it discussed with BSP supremo Mayawati. However, Ajit Jogi did not initially sign the future of coalition in an interview given to News 18. Jogi had said that the decision will depend on the circumstances. Just a day after Jogi and Maya met in Delhi.

Significantly, in the end of this year, Chhattisgarh assembly elections are going to be held. Ajit Jogi's party has emerged in Chhattisgarh as the third front. However, Ajit Jogi puts his speeches in the first place in the electoral fray. Let us say that after the meeting of Jogi and Maya in Delhi, the round of discussions in the political corridors had begun.

Congress will leave soon to join our party wife Renu - Ajit Jogi

Renu Jogi, wife of former Chief Minister and Janta Congress Chhattisgarh supremo Ajit Jogi, will soon quit Congress. Even before the announcement of the election, Renu Jogi may formally join the party in the party of his husband Ajit Jogi of Chhattisgarh. Former Chief Minister Ajit Jogi has given this information in a special conversation with News 18.

Former Chief Minister Ajit Jogi said that his wife Renu Jogi, who is Congress MLA, will soon join the Congress party in Chhattisgarh. Jogi said, 'We have been married for 41 years. In these years we have always supported each other. No one should imagine that we would be different. He will definitely join my party. '

Ajit Jogi denies the allegation made by Ajit Jogi in his entire conversation on the question of promoting familyism on Ajit Jogi. Jogi does not believe that he has promoted familyism. According to Ajit Jogi, familyism works for the first time, but not repeatedly. Let's tell that after coming to active politics in the former IAS, his wife Renu Jogi and son Amit Jogi contested on the ticket of Congress and now Jogi has discussions of his daughter-in-law Richa Jogi contesting the elections.

Public court accepts family
On the question of familyism, Ajit Jogi says that 'you can redeem familyism once, but after that there will be qualifications only people will be able to survive. If my wife is in politics, she has won the election three times. My son, if he has won by a record vote in politics then he has won. The public's court has accepted them. Earlier he was my son and wife but now he has won the election. So the question of familyism does not arise. '

Renuka Jogi's faith and integrity, with whom Ajit Jogi becomes a separate party, is with whom it is not hidden from anyone in the state. That is why Jogi Ji's statement is not surprising. There is a very confusing statement.
-RP Singh, Spokesperson, Pradesh Congress Committee, Chhattisgarh

Ajit Jogi and Renu Jogi are husband wives and this is their family affair. The Congress knows this very well. That's why Congress has already sidelined Jai in Renu. Who goes to a party, it has nothing to do with the BJP. The BJP is going to fight elections on its own.
