BJP has been in power from last two terms in the Rajnandgaon constituency in Sehor district of Chhattisgarh. It is said that the chief minister of Chhattisgarh Dr Raman Singh has good image among the public. Though BJP has been in power in the area, but this time Congress also likely to do well.

Let’s see what are the conditions that make Dr Raman Singh an uncrowned king of the constituency. Dr Raman Singh has done exemplary works in the area. If we say that the development done in last 15 years in the area is due to this leader, it would not be wrong. Dr Singh has received admiration for his organisational abilities, as reflected in his state's position with regard to implementation of programs to improve the condition of SCs and STs. For your knowledge, United Nations has also recognized the work done in Chhattisgarh under his leadership and the fiscal management of the state. Also special emphasis was given on agriculture, education, growth of tribal areas, women, children, farmers and youth in the area by him. Though opposition parties allege that youngsters are still struggling to get jobs.

In 2013 election, Rajnandgaon had witnessed a tough neck-and-neck fight between the ruling BJP and the Opposition Congress. Out of 90 seats, the BJP had won 49, while the Congress party bagged 39. The rest two seats were won each by a BSP and an independent candidate. Raman Singh won Rajnandgaon Assembly constituency by defeating Congress’ Alka Mudaliyar by a margin of 35,866 votes. Singh got 86,797 votes while Alka could get 50,931 votes. In 2008, Dr Singh won with 77230 votes defeating congress Udai Mudliyar by margin of 32389 votes. Mudliyar could get 44841 seats.

Although Hindu philosophy of BJP has made deeper penetration in the area and in Chhattisgarh, but the anguish generated by the SC-ST law could harm BJP, and in, turn Dr Raman Singh to some extent. Congress is likely to do well in the area as well. Rajnandgaon district has good literacy rate of about 75.96% with about 1537133 population, so it would be difficult to manipulate the verdict of the public on the common issues.

In 2003, Udai Mudaliyar of Congress won the seat by margin of mere 40 votes defeating BJP candidate Leelaram Bhojwani. So, no wonder if this time too Congress may return in the power.
