New Delhi, Nov 1: A pre-poll survey conducted by Sahara Samay-Hub pulse has predicted a neck-and-neck fight in the Chhattisgarh assembly elections scheduled on November 11 and 19. In this election, BJP's Raman Singh is looking to form government in the state for the third time in a row.

According to the survey, the BJP is expected to bag 46 of the 90 assembly seats while the Congress is likely to get 42 seats. In 2008, the BJP had won 50 seats but is set to lose four seats this time, the survey said. The Congress, on the hand hand, is likely to win those four seats to add to its current tally of 38.
