Raipur: Responding to speculations of joining the Aam Admi Party, CG Health minister TS Singh Deo on Saturday confirmed that the AAP leaders did approach the minister, but reiterated that he had no thoughts of leaving the party.
AAP contacted me. I am openly saying that I have not met AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal. I am in Congress and will and will continue to remain in Congress”, he said while talking to the media during a press conference.
Also clearing speculations on joining the saffron party, the aspiring Chief Minister said, “ I am in Congress now and will always be, there is no question of joining BJP ever. I have many conflicts with the party, so I will never join.”
Singh Deo had been much in the political panorama after the two- and half-year chief ministership issue was raised by him after current CM Bhupesh Baghel completed half of his tenure.
Buoyed by a massive win in Punjab, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has now shifted focus to Chhattisgarh and decided to contest the Assembly polls of 2023 with full strength.
