Raghuwanshi who defected to the Congress from the BJP said he was caught in a vicious circle. Raghuwanshi said the Congress leadership would take cognizance of what he said.
According to sources, since Raghuwanshi did not get a ticket from the Congress, he is searching for some other options.

The leaders of the Congress and the BJP are waiting for the next list. Once it is out, many leaders may leave their respective parties.
