New Delhi, News24 Bureau, Dec 7: Chattisgarh has voted for change, apparently. Joblessness and the woes of farmers have been the major issues. This was expected that the jobs and the farm crisis will be major factors. The other issues where Congress has got an edge are price rise and corruption. The difference is not very huge though and if News24-PEACS is an indication then BJP may be losing by a narrow margin.
Present CM Raman Singh is still the favourite for most followed by Ajit Jogi. While voting people were guided by a simple maxim: That they have to bring a change in the present state government.
This a paradox; though people like Raman Singh, they want BJP out of power this time. The verdict is clear but with a small margin.
