After Madhya Pradesh, the BJP proved exit polls wrong in Chhattisgarh by storming back to power defeating the Bhupesh Baghel-led Congress with 54 seats in the 90-member Assembly. The Congress, which was expected to win re-election, managed 36 seats.

Though the BJP went into this election without projecting a clear choice for chief minister, the frontrunners for the post include former CM Raman Singh and state BJP boss Arun Kumar Sao. Also said to be in the running are former IAS officer OP Chaudhary and Leader of Opposition in the outgoing assembly Dharamlal Kaushik. The last three named are from the Other Backward Class, a key votebank for the BJP in the Hindi heartland.

The Congress confidence that was blown up at the hustings today hid a deeper division among the state leadership which had raised its head with TS Singh Deo being elevated to Deputy CM in an obvious counter to Baghel.

A strong welfarist note of its campaign highlighting its almost Rs 2 lakh crore expenditure on schemes did not win voter confidence for the Congress. Instead the allegations of corruption like the Mahadev app, a hand in liquor scams and coal rates highlighted and utilised sharply by the BJP left the Congress no love among voters.

Union Minister Pralhad Joshi said the BJP has been blessed by the people of three states which show people have honoured PM Narendra Modi’s guarantee to deliver the poll promises made by the party. This is a clear rejection of the false promises of the Congress, he said.

The BJP promises in its manifesto were marginally higher or similar to the ones made by the Congress. These included an LPG cylinder for Rs 500, paddy procurement of 21 quintals at Rs 3,131 and housing. The Congress had also promised a farm loan waiver and

Last month, Home Minister Amit Shah brought out another chapter that needed ending. He said the BJP will put an end to the Naxals plaguing the state and that the Baghel government’s efforts ended up helping the left extremists.

Tiwari said that Arvind Kejriwal and AAP had ousted Congress from Delhi and Punjab and now the Chief Minister is sharing the stage with Rahul Gandhi.

He also said BJP and Prime Minister Modi are in everyone’s heart and the people of Delhi will decide everything as it is clear now that the top leaders of AAP and Congress are the same.

Meanwhile, AAP leader Atishi said that CM Kejriwal can be arrested soon. She alleged that ever since the INDIA bloc seat sharing was nearly finalised, Kejriwal started getting threats from everwhere. She also mentioned that the party members were told if they didn’t exit the alliance, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) would frame charges against Arvind Kejriwal to arrest him.

She claimed that the party had the information that the CBI would issue a notice on Monday and would arrest CM Kejriwal in a few days.
