The Congress in Chhattisgarh will hold its legislature party meeting here Saturday where the next Chief Minister of the state will be announced, a party leader said Friday.
Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday met four senior leaders of the state unit of the party -- Bhupesh Baghel, T S Singh Deo, Tamradhwaj Sahu and Charan Das Mahant -- in Delhi and held discussions with them, a state Congress spokesperson told PTI.
Deo and Baghel are being seen as leading contenders for the top post.
All four leaders along with party observer Mallikarjun Karge and Congress state in-charge P L Punia will arrive here Saturday by a special plane, he said.
Congress ended the BJP's 15-year rule in Chhattisgarh in the recently concluded Assembly elections by winning 68 of the 90 seats.
