Bastar Lok Sabha Elections and Results 2014


A stronghold of the BJP, the Bastar parliamentary constituency is one of the 11 Lok Sabha constituencies that represent the Central Indian state of Chhattisgarh.
The Bastar Parliamentary constituency (constituency number 10) has a total of 1,193,116 electorates out of which 609,710 are females and 583,406 are males according to Election Commission of India 2009 reports. This Lok Sabha constituency is reserved for candidates belonging to the scheduled tribes. Situated in the Bastar district in the southern regions of Chhattisgarh, the Bastar Lok Sabha seat is a politically volatile and extremely unstable constituency, as it often suffers due to Maoist insurgencies. In a recent Maoist attack in the Bastar district in May 2013, many Congressmen lost their lives.  

With a population of 14,11,647 people according to the 2011 Census, Bastar district is currently a part of the Red Corridor. Surrounded by the Maoist-prone Dantewada district on its south and south-west, the Bastar constituency is a very sensitive seat at the heart of the country.  

The Bastar parliamentary constituency was part of Madhya Pradesh until in 2000, when a separate state of Chhattisgarh was carved out of the state of Madhya Pradesh. The economy in the state survives on under developed agricultural techniques, though some big industries in the region such as Tata Steel Plant and Nagarnar Steel Plant have already made way into the district.
