BJP’s ‘Modi ki Guarantee’ pitch turned the contest in Chhattisgarh around leading the party to a decisive victory. Successfully making a comeback, the BJP secured an absolute majority winning 54 seats while the Congress trailed at 35 seats. Defying exit polls that predicted a clear edge for the Congress, the BJP unseated the CM Bhupesh Baghel-led government in the tribal-dominated state.

On BJP’s victory in Chhattisgarh, Addressing the media party leader and former CM Raman Singh says, “BJP was in power in Chhattisgarh for 15 years but no one could point a finger at us. Wherever BJP forms its government, it unites the people and works together. Congress does the politics of appeasement, BJP always finds a way to ensure justice for the people.”

BJP secured a massive victory in three out of four states situated in the country’s heartland – Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan. In its second win in the south this year, Congress managed to crush K Chandrashekar Rao-led Bharat Rashtra Samithi’s (BRS) ‘hat-trick’ dream in Telangana and wrested power to form the first-ever non-BRS government in the youngest state.

After the big win in three states, the BJP continues to face the question of potential chief ministerial faces who would lead a new set of cabinets for the next five years.
