Bhupesh Baghel was appointed as the Chief Minister on December 17 after the Congress marked a landslide victory in the State Assembly elections by dislodging the Raman Singh-led BJP government. The Congress bagged a whopping 68 out of the total 90 seats in the state, while the BJP only managed to secure 15 seats.
However, the party suffered a huge setback from the state in the last month concluded national polls 2019. Out of the all 11 Lok Sabha Seats, Congress could only manage to bag 2 seats with a vote share with just over 40 per cent vote share.
