The alliance of the Janata Congress Chhattisgarh (J) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) has already created a ripple in the political scenario of Chhattisgarh, with the state going for polls later this year.

According to the terms of the alliance, JCC (J) would fight the election in 55 seats while BSP would put its candidate in 35 seats.

JCC (J) supremo Ajit Jogi appeared confident that the alliance between the two parties would make an impact in the state.

The BSP will field the candidates in 12 Scheduled Tribe seats and seven Scheduled Caste seats in the state.

A joint press conference was addressed by JCC(J) supremo Ajit Jogi in the presence of leaders from the BSP.

The chiefs of both parties have entered into an agreement for a pre-poll alliance, and another meeting was held by the top leadership of both parties on Monday at Bilaspur to discuss the intricacies of the BSP and JCC (J).
