Chhattisgarh Election History and Past Results

Demand for a separate Chhattisgarh state started way back in 1920s but it was not untill 1990s that the demand gained some momentum. Chandulal Chadrakar led a political forum Chhattisgarh Rajya Nirman Manch which vociferously raised the demand for a separate state.

The first round of elections in the state was the Assembly elections in 2000 which went to the Congress andd Ajit Jogi became the first CM of the state. However they did not last the full term and fresh elections were held in 2003. Ever since then BJP led by Raman Singh has won thress consecutive elections in the state.

In Lok Sabha elections, BJP has done exceedingly well. In 2004, 2009 as well as 2014, BJP has won 10 seats as compared to just 1 of the Congress. BJP lost just the Durg seat that too by a narrow margin of just over 16 thousand votes. In 2004, BJP won 10 seats but lost the Rajnandgaon seat in by-polls. With strong Congress leader Ajit Jogi leaving the party in 2016, it’d be tough for the Congress to perform any better in 2019 elections.

One major issue with the state has been Maoist violence which still continues to run rampant. 18 districts out of 27 are facing Maoist violence with area around Bastar being the worst affected.

Congress’s only hope will be that anti-incumbancy factor will work against BJP. having ruled the state for past 15 years, BJP will be hoping that they can manage to win a fourth term in the state in 2018 Assembly polls. But if Congress manages to win 2018 state elections, it will give it a lot of hope, especially because the 2019 Parliamentary elections would be held just about 6 months after the state polls.

– Chhattisgarh state was formed in the year 2000. For previous election results of these constituencies see Madhya Pradesh Election Results.
