Raipur: Former Chhattisgarh CM and Congress leader Bhupesh Baghel's father Nand Kumar Baghel passed away earlier this morning, January 8. Nand Kumar Baghel was 89 years old and was admitted to Shribalaji Hospital of the capital city of Raipur for the last 3 months where he breathed his last.
In a post on X, Bhupesh Baghel said, "Babuji Shri Nand Kumar Baghel ji passed away this morning. His mortal remains have been kept at Patan Sadan (in Raipur). His last rites will be held on January 10 in our home village Kuruddih (Durg district), after my younger sister returns from abroad." He also shared a picture with his father.
In 2021, Nand Kumar Baghel was arrested during his son's government for allegedly making controversial remarks against a community.
After the formation of Chhattisgarh in 2000, a row had erupted over Nand Kumar Baghel's book, titled 'Brahmin Kumar Ravan Ko Mat Maro', following which the then Ajit Jogi-led Congress government banned the book.
