A significant paradigm change resulted after the Chhattisgarh Assembly elections in 2018. An extraordinary win over the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was declared by the Indian National Congress (INC).

INC won 68 seats out of 90, putting a decisive end to BJP's 15-year rule.  Unfortunately, the BJP only succeeded in winning 15 seats, a striking fall in its support. Ajit Jogi, a former chief minister, and the Janata Congress Chhattisgarh Jogi-Bahujan Samaj Party (JCCJ-BSP) together won seven.
