Written By Daamini Sharma | Mumbai | Published:

With the Lok Sabha elections 2019 inching closer, Republic TV and CVoter have presented the National Approval Ratings to give complete national picture as to who will win if polls are held in September 2018. 11 seats up for grabs in Assembly poll bound Chhattisgarh and here is the scenario:  

  • Despite anti-incumbency at a national level, the BJP set to retain 9 out of 11 seats which is only one less than its seat share of 2014
  • The INC despite Rahul gandhi’s high pitch  is set to gain only a single seat in the state.  
  • In terms of voteshare toon there doesn’t seem to tbe much movement, given that the BJPs voteshare is slated the decrease by 0.6% and the INCs voteshare is set to increase by 0.7%.  

Consider the pattern ever since the inception of Chhattisgarh:

  • 2004 : BJP -10 seats (47.8%): INC 1 seat (40.2%)
  • 2009: BJP-10 seats (45%), INC 1 seat (37.3%)
  • 2014: BJP - 10 seats (48.8%), INC 1 seat (38.4%)
  • 2018: BJP-9 seats (48.2%), INC 2 seats (39.1%)

2018 has been a blockbuster year so far as far as the political landscape of India is concerned. While BJP managed to form government in 3 states this year, either in alliance or on its own, gaining a massive lead over the Opposition, the Congress, by forming government in Karnataka by tying up with the JDS, saved itself from being out of power in all large states, save for Punjab. Out of 4 states, which went to polls this year, BJP has its government on its own in Tripura and with alliance partners in two states, namely, Meghalaya (with National People’s Party), Nagaland (with Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party), whereas the Congress managed to form government in Karnataka with JDS as its alliance partner.

The results of 2019 Lok Sabha elections may or may not reflect the results or scenarios of the state assembly elections, nevertheless, to establish where we stand at present, Republic TV and CVoter has presented the National Approval Ratings.
