Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Thursday assured that Manturam, who had made startling allegations against some political bigwigs in Antagarh graft case, would be provided adequate security as he feared threat to his life.
The Chief Minister also claimed that Manturam’s disclosure in the case brought the “the real face of state’s former Chief Minister Raman Singh to the open.”
Baghel while talking to media persons here at a school in Bhilai said the Congress which had fought against the bribery case is now paying dividends.
The Congress had then protested over the issue at national capital’s Jantar Mantar and right from the beginning was claiming that there was a high-level deal for withdrawal of nomination.
Notable, the then Congress candidate who had withdrawn nominations in Antagarh by-polls in 2014 had now leveled serious allegations against state’s former chief ministers Raman Singh and Ajit Jogi claiming they forced him to do so.
