Chhattisgarh will see the first phase of its two-phased assembly polls on Monday. On Friday, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi flayed the Raman Singh government in his address at Rajnandgaon over the deadly Maoist attacks that wiped out the Congress leadership in the state.
He said the slain state party president Nand Kumar Patel was certain to become the chief minister and death was the only way to stop him. Twenty-five people, including top Congress leaders from the state and also a former Union minister, were killed in the attack on May 25.
Both Sonia and Rahul Gandhi slammed the Raman Singh govt in their addresses
Congress chief Sonia Gandhi addressed a rally in Bastar on Thursday where she accused the BJP government in the state of playing divisive politics.
The results of the Chhattisgarh elections, along with those in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Delhi, will come out on December 8.
