At a gathering of 54 recently elected MLAs in Raipur on December 10, Vishnu Deo Sai, a well-known tribal face of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Chhattisgarh, was selected as the party’s legislative leader. He will serve as the state’s chief minister. “On December 12 or 13, Vishnu Sai is probably going to take the oath of office as chief minister,” Dushyant Kumar Gautam, a BJP observer from Chhattisgarh state, stated.
Vishnu Deo Sai
Vishnu Deo Sai said, “With all honesty, I will work for ‘Sabka Vishwas’ and the promises made to the people of Chhattisgarh under ‘Modi Ki Guarantee’ will be fulfilled” upon taking office as their new chief minister. We will keep our word as the state’s CM. The first task will be distributing 18 lakh ‘Awas’ to the populace on Sunday, newly elected legislators met in Raipur with BJP central observers Sarbananda Sonowal and Arjun Munda to discuss the state’s chief ministerial candidate. Former Raman Singh has announced that the stars will have two Deputy Chiedeputy chief ministers, Vishnu Deo Sai.
The Chhattisgarh Assembly Election of 2023 was won by Vishnu Deo Sai, who was from Kunkuri. From 2020 to 2022, Sai served as Chhattisgarh’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state president. In the first Narendra Modi Cabinet, he also served as the Minister of State (MoS) for Labor and Employment, Steel, Mines, and Mines. In 1999, 2004, 2009, and 2014, Vishnu Deo emerged victorious in four straight Lok Sabha elections from the Raigarh constituency.
In these elections, Sai defeated the candidates of the Congress, Pushpa Devi Singh, Rampukar Singh, Hridayaram Rathiya, and Arti Singh, in that order. Sai emerged victorious in two consecutive Assembly elections (1990 and 1993), representing the undivided Madhya Pradesh constituency of Tapkara. In the 2023 Chhattisgarh Assembly Election, Vishnu Deo emerged victorious over the incumbent Congress Member of Legislation, UD Minj.
Challenges and Expectations
Sai assumes Chhattisgarh’s leadership amid many issues confronting the state, such as destitution, joblessness, and inadequate progress in the tribal regions. He is anticipated to tackle these problems by emphasizing inclusive development and growth.
There are now expectations for increased tribal community empowerment and representation in the state’s political system following the appointment of a tribal leader as Chief Minister. It is anticipated that Sai will endeavor to meet these communities’ goals and guarantee their fair involvement in the development process.
Sai has led the BJP’s Chhattisgarh unit three times, demonstrating the confidence of the national leadership in his capacity for the organization. From humble beginnings as the sarpanch of a small village, Sai worked his way up to join Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s first Council of Ministers following the BJP’s 2014 formation of a majority government at the federal level.
