Congress has reasons to breathe easy as Chhabindra Karma finally withdrew his candidature as an independent from Dantewada seat.
It need be mentioned that Devati Karma had been fielded by the Congress from this seat.
Incidentally, Devati Karma is also mother of Chhabindra Karma.
She is also the incumbent legislator of the area and the fact that Congress has repeated her as contender establishes that she may have quite a support of the masses.
Congress and even the Karma family had been persuading Chhabindra to withdraw from the contest in favour of his mother.
It need be mentioned that this legislative election this time in Chhattisgarh is crucial in that many parties have fielded their candidates and this might lead to shrunk margins of the winning candidate.>
