BHUBANESWAR: Congress leaders are back to their old game again. Serious differences have cropped up in the Congress Legislature Party (CLP) ahead of the budget session of Assembly, which is likely to begin from August 18, with 12 MLAs camping at New Delhi to demand ouster of chief whip Taraprasad Bahinipati.
The MLAs are likely to meet party president Sonia Gandhi and vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday. They had a meeting with All India Congress Committee (AICC) general secretary in-charge BK Hariprasad on Monday.
Leader of the Opposition Narasingha Mishra and Bahinipati did not accompany the team of MLAs which included Bhujabal Majhi and Chandrasekhar Majhi.
One of the MLAs camping at New Delhi, Nabakishore Das, said the MLAs discussed the political situation in Odisha and how to strengthen Congress in the State.
The MLAs did not demand the ouster of Bahinipati nor there will be any such demand during the meetings with Sonia and Rahul Gandhi, he said.
