About Chhattisgarh Elections

Chhattisgarh is not a state like other states. It is divided from Madhya Pradesh. Bharatiya Janata Party has formed the state as per the wishes of local people.

Geographically it has mountains and forests. Its rich source of minerals is another advantage. The main population is Adivasis and number of other religions is very less.

BJP has made some development work towards various issues hence it has been back to power. There are no corruption issues against present government except a failure of a hospital issue.Main issue is of Naxalism in the state, and the present government is in control so far. During the regime of Congress in Chhattisgarh, Adivasis were used as voters and exploited Adivasis. Middlemen who were purchasing forest products were supported with and Adivasis were totally exploited. It is basically one of the reasons of Naxalism. It’s an opportunity for the present government to associate with the people of Chhattisgarh to flourish the state.

Chhattisgarh Legislative Assembly has 90 seats in total….. A strong vote bank in respective constituencies of political leaders keeps the government shuffling.In all previous 3 elections there have been very tough fights between Congress and BJP. Congress lost only by 5-6 seats. So out of 90, remaining 80 seats its very difficult for both BJP and Congress to get 45 seats.

Chhattisgarh Legislative Assembly Election 2013 was held in two phases where the incumbent ruling party BJP and Chief Minister Raman Singh retained the majority in assembly and formed government consequently for the third time.

Next proposed elections in the state of Chhattisgarh is to be in the end of 2018 and the start of 2019, for 90 seats.
