Chattisgarh: CPI-M asks people to vote for Congress to defeat BJP in the upcoming state elections

Chhatisgarh is to hold elections in two phases for the 90 seat-assembly, on November 12 and 20. Results will be announced on December 11.

Facing an existential crisis, the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) seems to be desperate to be relevant in the electoral politics, as the left-wing party is trying to forge an alliance and has urged its voters to vote for the Congress in the upcoming Chattisgarh state elections to prevent BJP from securing another term in the state.

Surjya Kant Mishra, Politburo member, and CPI (M) state secretary on Monday asked the communist cadre in Chhattisgarh to vote for the Congress wherever the left is weak and unable to field candidates indicating at a possible alliance with the Congress party in the 2019 general elections.

Mishra said that the CPI-M is contesting three seats in the Chattisgarh elections and said the party should fight hard to defeat the BJP. While speaking to the media, Mishra added that there are many seats where they do not have strong candidates and hence votes should be polled in favour of Congress to stop the BJP from returning to power.

Mishra is also the secretary of CPI(M) West Bengal unit, said the CPI-M should fight hard to defeat both the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Trinamool Congress in West Bengal and claimed that both parties are pursuing politics of Communalisation.

Meanwhile, the incumbent Chief Minister Raman Singh has started the party’s campaign from Maoist-infested Sukma ahead of the first phase of elections in the state. Raman Singh, who is contesting from Rajnandgaon will be fighting for his fourth term in the state.

The elections to Chhattisgarh state assembly will be conducted in two phases. The first phase of election will cover 18 constituencies in eight Naxal-affected districts – Bastar, Kanker, Sukma, Bijapur, Dantewada, Narayanpur, Kondagaon, and Rajnandgaon and the remaining districts will go to polls on November 20. The results will be announced on December 11 along with other four states.
