Chhattisgarh election Results

BJP avenges Assembly election defeat, steamrolls Congress in Chhattisgarh

Like in other Hindi heartland states, BJP maintained its superlative performance in Chhattisgarh too as the party grabbed 9 out of 11 seats in the state. The Congress, which had defeated BJP in Assembly election in December last year, bagged just two seats. In the 2014 Lok Sabha election, the BJP had won 10 seats and the Congress one. Interestingly, the Congress had never won more than one seat in Chhattisgarh in the three Lok Sabha elections since the formation of state from Madhya Pradesh in 2002.
