Modi's latest visit was finalised after BJP workers in all the poll-bound states demanded extension of his campaign. The Gujarat chief minister campaigned in Chhattisgarh last week ahead of the first phase of the polling on November 11 which was marred by Maoist violence and witnessed a low turnout. Eighteen constituencies had gone to the polling in the first phase.

The remaining 72 constituencies of the 90-seat assembly will go to the polls in the second phase. Top leaders from both the BJP and Congress have been intensely campaigning in Chhattisgarh where Raman Singh has been leading a BJP government for a decade now.
