Chhattisgarh election 2023
The BJP on December 3 wrested power from the Congress in Chhattisgarh, winning 54 of the 90 seats in the state assembly, while the huge old party got 35 seats. In 2018, the saffron party suffered a significant defeat in Chhattisgarh's tribal-dominated assembly seats, but this time it performed well, winning 17 of the 29 seats reserved for Scheduled Tribes (ST).
?
29 seats are reserved for the ST category in the 90 member Chhattisgarh assembly, which is around 32 per cent of the state's population. BJP won 17 tribal-dominated seats of the 29 reserved seats.?
?
The polling experts say that the party won the tribal belt thanks to public rallies held by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, and BJP chief JP Nadda in the tribal belt, the launch of the party's two parivartan yatras from tribal pockets, and pre-poll promises.
?
BJP's senior tribal leaders who have won this time from reserved seats for the ST community are Union minister Renuka Singh (Bharatpur-Sonhat), MP Gomti Sai (Pathalgaon), former state ministers Ramvichar Netam (Ramanujganj), former Union minister Vishnu Deo Sai (Kunkuri), Kedar Kashyap (Narayanpur) and Lata Usendi (Kondagaon).?
