Once a part of Madhya Pradesh before Chhattisgarh was carved out in 2000, Raipur is one of the 11 Lok Sabha constituencies that belong to the state of Chhattisgarh. 1,578,868 is the total electorate count in the Raipur Lok Sabha Constituency (constituency number 8). Out of these 814,782 number of electorates are males and the remaining 764,086 are belong to the female category as the Election commission of India 2009 reports suggest.
It covers the whole district of Raipur, whose administrative seat is the Raipur city. With a population of 10,10,087, Raipur is the capital city of Chhattisgarh. The economy thrives on a rich agricultural base, owing to the extensive production of different types of rice varieties grown in the rich alluvial plains in the District. This region is often referred to as the “Rice Bowl of India”. However, this image of an agriculturally rich Raipur is in the process of transition, as Raipur is gradually becoming a commercial and industrial hub, with the prominent presence of steel, cement, aluminium and power industries. Some of the must- visit tourist spots here are Vivekananda Sarovar, Mahant Ghasidas Museum, Mahakosal Kala Parishad, Raipur Municipal Corporation Building or the White House, Nandanvan and Purkhauti Muktangan Museum, among others. Nine Vidhan Sabha segments comprise the parliamentary constituency of Raipur, out of which the Arang segment is reserved for Scheduled Caste candidates.
