Congress Leader Suspended For Indecent Behaviour

Raipur: Congress leader and chairman of Chhattisgarh Karmkar Board have been suspended following an altercation with another Congress leader over parking space inside the party’s state office in Raipur on Saturday. “Sushil Sunny Agrawal, former secretary of Chhattisgarh Pradesh Congress Committee (CPCC) and chairman of Karmakar Board of Chhattisgarh, has been suspended from the primary membership of the party with immediate effect for his “indecent” behaviour with the CPCC’s General Secretary Amarjeet Chawla in the presence of Markam and media persons at party office Rajiv Bhavan,” the suspension order said, noting that state Congress chief Mohan Markam was among the many witnesses to the altercation on Saturday afternoon.
A video of the incident in which Agrawal is seen charging at and addressing Chawla inappropriately went viral on social media platforms. Party leaders said the argument started after Chawla asked for Agarwal’s vehicle to be shifted to vacate parking space for Markam, who was due to arrive at the party office. When contacted, Agarwal refused to comment on the issue. Last week, a clash took place between Congress leaders in the Jashpur district over the issue of purported power sharing agreement between chief minister Bhupesh Baghel and state’s health minister TS Singh Deo.
