Status update: No one has been able to estimate the damage done to BJP and Dilip Singh Judeo after the mysterious sting operation. Ajit Jogi thinks it has. Judeo, however must be fuming and fretting and hoping against hope that the tribals do not know, or do not care if they do.

Ajit Jogi seems to be the better of the two for Chhattisgarh. Judeo is kown for nothing more than his reconversion  programme, Ghar Vaapasi. In fact, it is reported that he faced a bunch of bureaucrats with the self introduction, "hum toh ghar vaapasi wale aadmi hain." 

Chhattisgarh can do without a bribe-taker and trouble-maker as its chief minister. Though, one would wish Jogi learns a few lessons, and changes his style a bit - and do not continue being the venomous opponent he is reputed to be. 

Elections to four states Delhi, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh - will be held on December 1 and elections to the Mizo assembly will be held on November 20.

In the Chhattisgarh state assembly elections 2003, the fledgling state will witness a direct fight between BJP and Congress. 

The current chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, Ajit Jogi,  will face off against Dilip Singh Judeo of BJP in the state assembly elections, to be held on December 1, 2003. 

Chhattisgarh elections are getting very confusing right now. In many ways, the state elections will be a face-off between Ajit Jogi and BJP. Congress is almost synonymous with Ajit Jogi in the state. Ajit's Jogi's congress seemed to have the upper hand till recently, and then a spate of controversies -  about Jogi's alleged faking of documents, his own still-unclear tribal status - have put him in a difficult situation. Dilip Singh Judeo has promised to shave off his moustache if he loses the in the Chhattisgarh state assembly elections. He did not clarify how that would help the BJP or the state, though. 

The Chhattisgarh assembly elections are right now too tough to call. The Election Commission has severely chastised the state government for partisan behaviour. Jogi and Congress seems to be unrepentant. There is no doubting the personal popularity of Jogi in the state, and it is still to be seen if that is enough to win this election.
