Chhattisgarh Assembly Election Results 2018: Facing an anti-incumbency of 15 years, the Raman Singh-led BJP government is hoping to win the elections facing a divided opposition in Chhattisgarh. The results of the 90-member assembly will be declared by the Election Commission of India on Tuesday.
Polling in Chhattisgarh took place in two phases to facilitate a smooth election in the state which saw an overall turnout of 74.17 per cent. While votes were polled on 18 seats in the first phase, people voted on 72 seats in the second phase. The ruling BJP holds 43 of the 72 seats, with the party sweeping several areas in the Chhattisgarh plains in the 2013 elections. Meanwhile, the Congress is confident of consolidating its position and overturning deficits in the plains with farmer anger against the BJP. There is a third element for the first time in a bipolar state, after the Mayawati-led Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), former chief minister Ajit Jogi’s Janata Congress Chhattisgarh and the Communist Party of India (CPI) joining hands to contest the polls.
