The tenure of the 90-seat Chhattisgarh Assembly will end on January 5, 2019. In Chhattisgarh, it is a fierce three-way fight with BSP chief Mayawati announcing an alliance with Janata Congress and announcing Ajit Jogi as the CM candidate.
The Congress and BJP are fighting it out among themselves. Opinion polls have predicted a mixed bag in the state. While one poll predicted a win for the BJP, another indicated a victory for the Congress. However, what remains to be seen is whether the BSP-JC alliance will spring a surprise.
