The Kanker parliamentary constituency is one of the most politically sensitive constituencies in the state, as it falls in and around the Bastar district which is frequently victimized by the Red Labels.

Agriculture provides the economic backbone to this region, which lies between the two developed urban centres of Raipur and Jagdalpur in the state. The total number of voters in the constituency, according to the 2009 Lok Sabha elections, is reported to be 7,41,792 people.
