The fate of hundreds of candidates of Chhattisgarh will be scripted on December 3 when 90 of them will bag the opportunity to outshine and make it to the Vidhan Sabha.
There has been an unsaid tussle even among the top leaders of the ruling party i.e. Bhupesh Baghel and T.S. Singh Dev. On the other hand, Dr. Raman Singh, who has served as the chief minister of the state thrice, is also looking forward to the results.
Before we see who’s winning over whom, here’s the analysis of Today’s Chanakya that says a lot about what December 3 can reveal. Their analysis says that the political party and the candidate are the strongest voting factors in Chhattisgarh.
While political parties keep speaking on the issues of religion and development, what matters the most to the voters of Chhattisgarh is the political face and the party. The charm of leaders still does wonders. The second important factor as per the analysis is development. However, there have been different versions of ‘development’ for different classes.
Caste politics? Who votes for whom?
In Chhattisgarh, Congress remains favourite of SC and ST classes for around 54% and 51% of the SC and ST population respectively. However, for others, that include the general category, the BJP is the choice. 51% of the ‘others’ class seems picking the saffron brigade. Meanwhile, the OBC still seems to maintain a balance between both the leading parties.
