Raipur: The infighting in the Chhattisgarh Pradesh Congress Committee (CPCC) came out in the open as corporator Ajaz Dhebar’s supporters ransacked the newly built party office Rajiv Bhawan in Raipur on Thursday evening.

Opposing the party’s decision to field Kanhiya Agrawal from Raipur (South) against BJP candidate and sitting MLA Brijmohan Agrawal, the supporters of Dhebar, who aspires to contest from the same Assembly seat, stormed into Rajiv Bhawan and broke furniture as well as flower pots to express their resentment.

After being informed about the ruckus in Rajiv Bhawan, police teams from Pandri, Kotwali and Civil Lines police station rushed to the spot and brought the situation under control.
It is worth recalling that a local court in Raipur had sent Dhebar to jail in connection with the execution of a pending warrant, related to a case of brawl which took place in 2010. However, a sessions court had granted bail to the Congress leader.


In a wake of special drive launched by Raipur Police for execution of pending warrants, Dhebar filed a bail plea regarding the case and surrendered before a lower court in Raipur, said police sources, adding that the court had denied bail to Dhebar and sent him to judicial custody.

Dhebar is a Congress corporator from Maulana Abdul Rauf ward and also a member of Mayor-in-Council in Raipur Municipal Corporation. 
So far, the Congress has not filed any complaint with regard to the incident in Rajiv Bhawan.

Meanwhile, the Congress workers reportedly damaged the party's state unit in-charge PL Punia’s office door.
