Chhattisgarh polls: ‘Vote more against MLAs, not outgoing CM Raman Singh’
The Congress swept the Chhattisgarh assembly polls on Tuesday with a landslide victory, routing the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in a result more lopsided than pollsters predicted. In this episode of HT Conversations, Hindustan Times senior editor Kumar Uttam talks about how the vote was more against the outgoing MLAs and not so much against the outgoing chief minister Raman Singh, whose government battled a 15-year anti-incumbency. Kumar Uttam also talks about the future prospects of Raman Singh. Uttam says the BJP stalwart from Chhattisgarh still has a political career ahead of him.
