Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while campaigning in poll bound Chhattisgarh, targeted urban maoists and also asked if Congress supports if action is taken against them.
It need be mentioned that BJP is banking on PM Modi and his campaigning as Bastar region is still very active in terms of naxalism.
Congress campaign is also trying to swing voters in its favour by promising to keep farmers happy and not letting unchecked development bulldoze the interest of fragile communities.
After the rally in Jagdalpur, PM Modi will hold a road-show in Rajnandgaon, the constituency of Chief Minister Raman Singh.
Raman Singh faces Congress’s Karuna Shukla, niece of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
Modi also took potshots at the Congress for considering the dalits and Adivasis as vote banks rather than humans
and recounted host of development activities to claim credit for the ruling BJP.

Of these, 12 are Scheduled Tribes seats and one Scheduled Castes reserved seat.
People in the remaining 72 constituencies will vote on November 20. Counting of votes is on December 11.>
