Congress has finally announced 12 candidates for Chhattisgarh poll.
The first phase of polling in Chhattisgarh is to be held across 18 seats of the state.
This includes 12 seats from Bastar and six from Rajnandgaon as well.
It need be mentioned that most of the sitting legislators of Congress have been repeated by the party.
This shows that party is confident of their performance and that they will once again bring in the precious Bastar seats for the Congress fold yet again.
Among the prominent names who have been repeated by Congress includes Kawasi Lakhma of Konta, Manoj Singh Mandavi from Bhanupratappur as well as Devati Karma of Dantewada and Deepak Kumar Baij of Chitrakot.
Congress had bagged eight of the twelve seats of Bastar and it appeared that the party is quite close to coming to power.
Congress has not yet released the list of candidates to be fielded from Rajnandgaon’s six seats.
These seats also will go to polls in the first phase itself.>
