BJP vanquishes Congress, scripts spectacular comeback in Chattisgarh

Raipur, Dec 3 (UNI) Riding the crest of an anti-incumbency wave, the BJP vanquished the Congress in tribal-dominated Chhattisgarh by emerging victorious in 54 of the total 90 Assembly constituencies in the vote count on Sunday.
The stage is now set for the swearing-in of a saffron government, with the BJP coming up with its most emphatic victory since the formation of the state. The suspense now centres around who the BJP would anoint as its chief minister, as it had gone to the hustings without a face for the top job, rather banking on the appeal of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
At the other end, nine ministers of the outgoing Bhupesh Baghel government bit the dust, indicating the level of anti-incumbency that brought the Congress regime down.
