However in 1998 itself, fresh general elections were held and the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), after coming to power in the Centre, redrafted the bill which now came to be called the Separate Chhattisgarh Bill. This bill was again unanimously passed in the Madhya Pradesh Assembly and tabled in the Lok Sabha. Both the Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha approved the bill and made it into the Madhya Pradesh Reorganization Act 2000. This Act was approved and acknowledged on 25th August 2000 by the then President of India, K.R. Narayanan.
On 1st of November 2000, the peaceful creation of Chhattisgarh as the 26th state of India was witnessed. It was on the same day that the Chhattisgarh Legislative Assembly or the Chhattisgarh Vidhan Sabha, responsible for the proper governance of the state, was formed. Chhattisgarh presently consists of 27 districts. The state is the seat of major political parties and contributes to the national-level politics of India.
Chhattisgarh is a prominent Indian state with an important mark on the history of the country. The state has a government that runs the state to maintain law and order in the state. The government of Chhattisgarh also is responsible for the development of the country. The state government is selected through the assembly elections, where the political parties of the state provide their candidates for participating in the election for representations of the 90 constituencies of the state. The election is organized periodically to select the ruling party of the state. The chief minister of Chhattisgarh is selected through the general elections.
The politics of Chhatisgarh is mainly a field for major national political parties like The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the Congress, and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP). In present times, BJP has a majority in the legislative assembly while the last time, it was Congress. However, both of them play an influential role in the state's politics. The present chief minister of the state is Dr. Raman Singh while Mr Ajit Jogi was the first chief minister of the newly-created state. Governer is the ceremonial head of the state, but all the real political powers are with the Chief Minsiter. See Chhattisgarh Assembly Elections 2013 Results
