Party spokesman Randeep Surjewala said that the electoral verdict is significant given the fact that BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi were having high hopes in the state and had appealed to voters to make Chhattisgarh 'Congress-free'.
He claimed people have voted against the state government in spite of the fact that BJP allegedly used a lot of money power to win the polls.
The state Congress has demanded Chief Minister Raman Singh’s resignation 'because the CM had asked the voters to vote in his name'.

After suffering crushing defeats in Assembly and parliamentary polls in the past year, Congress put up a good show in the Chhattisgarh civic body elections and won four out of ten municipal seats, while the ruling BJP was reduced to from six to four.

The remaining two seats were won by independent candidates, including a eunuch.
