It was decided that the final decision on the question of change of leadership would be taken after the elections. But how impractical this arrangement of the high command was, it was made completely clear by the developments of the last two months. The electoral process had not even started, the question of ticket distribution had not even arisen, but whether it was the captain or the opposing camp – both started to establish a decisive lead over the other side to take complete control of the organization. This was the reason that the ceasefire could not take place despite the indications of the high command. The disgruntled MLAs kept on reaching Delhi again and again, pressurizing them to change the Chief Minister.
Finally, a meeting of the legislature party was called on Saturday, in which the Captain resigned after seeing his defeat certain. But now the important question is whether Channi’s arrival will stop the tug of war between the different factions within the party or will it feed on the time of further ticket distribution? Secondly, the Captain may have left the post of Chief Minister, the suspense of his next move remains. What role does he play in the party, how long does he stay and if he leaves the party, where does he go, all eyes will be kept on questions like. Not only the Congress, but the equations of state politics will also depend a lot on the answers to these questions.
