The state of Chhattisgarh has 11 Lok Sabha seats for which 166 candidates were in the fray. The major political parties in the state are BJP and Congress, who witnessed a tough fight to frame the government.

Barring an improvised explosive device (IED) blast triggered by Naxals during the second phase in Rajnandgaon constituency, the polling in the state was largely peaceful.

All eyes were on Rajnandgoan seat, which was won by former Chhattisgarh CM Raman Singh's son Abhishek Singh back in 2014. It is worth noting that Abhishek Singh was not given ticket by the Saffron party this time and instead the BJP decided to field RSS man Santosh Pandey against Bholaram Sahu of Congress. In Bastar, Congress' young leader Dipak Baij won the seat against senior BJP leader Baiduram Kashyap.  Bastar was the bastion of BJP as the party has never lost from this seat since 1998.

Here is the list of the successful candidates from Chhattisgarh in the Lok Sabha election 2019:
