About Chhattisgarh Elections
A prominent state situated in Central India, Chhattisgarh has a vibrant political history. The demand for the creation of a separate state of Chhattisgarh existed from as early as the 1920s, although this demand was tabled in the Lok Sabha for the first time in 1998. The two major parties which made serious constructive efforts to cater to this legitimate demand are the Indian National Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). In 1998, the BJP-led Union Government drafted a bill for the formation of the new state of Chhattisgarh, by bifurcating sixteen south-eastern districts of Madhya Pradesh, which had Chhattisgarhi as their main dialect. This bill was unanimously approved by the Madhya Pradesh Assembly, after making certain alterations to it.
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 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, Congress has a majority in the legislative assembly while the last time, it was BJP. However, both of them play an influential role in the state's politics.
