December 07, 2003 00:20 IST
The Congress on Saturday night suspended outgoing Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Ajit Jogi with immediate effect for using party president Sonia Gandhi's name in alleged attempts to break up the BJP legislature party.
The Congress leadership, it appears, has run out of patience with Jogi who is already facing allegations of corruption.
The BJP had on Saturday night come up with an audio tape in which a man, purportedly Jogi, strikes a deal with another man to support a government led by the breakaway group of the BJP.Congress leaders Anand Sharma and Ambika Soni said that this is a ploy to deflect attention from the bribery allegations against former Union minister Dilip Singh Judeo, who was seen in a video tape accepting money from a man who wanted mining rights in Chhattisgarh.
