Chhattisgarh election result: The counting of votes in tribal-dominated Chhattisgarh will be held on Tuesday and results of 90 assembly seats will be declared tomorrow. While Congress is eyeing a comeback to power after a 15-year hiatus, BJP exuded confidence of winning 65 plus seats out of the 90 Assembly constituencies. The key gamechanger here could be the pre-poll alliance between Mayawati-led Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and former state Chief Minister Ajit Jogi’s newly-floated Janata Congress Chhattisgarh (JCC). Polling was held in two phases on November 12 and November 20.
