As far as vote-share is concerned, UPA and NDA have a close-call with the former at 43.9% and latter at 46.9%, meanwhile Ajit Jogi garners 7.7% and 1% for Others, as per the predictions.
The assembly elections in Chhattisgarh found Congress on the winning side, and a similar scenario is projected in the state, with a close-battle predicted between the two national parties- BJP and Congress.
In the wake of the massive loss in the assembly elections in Chhattisgarh, the BJP has decided to drop all its 10 sitting lawmakers from the state. BJP General Secretary Anil Jain confirmed that the saffron party has decided to face the Lok Sabha elections with 'new candidates with fresh energy' to make it victorious under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
