Chhattisgarh Assembly polls 

Bypoll in Dantewada following death of BJP MLA Bhima Mandavi in Maoist attack 

The bypoll for this ST constituency was necessitated following the death of BJP MLA from Dantewada Bhima Mandavi in a Maoist attack ahead of the first phase of polling for the Lok Sabha elections in April this year on 11 April.

Mandavi and four security personnel were killed on 9 April – two days ahead of the first-phase of Lok Sabha polling in Bastar—by Maoists, when the latter attacked the MLA’s convoy on way back home from poll campaigning near Shyamgiri.  A powerful IED blast killed five people on the spot.

Mandavi was the only BJP MLA who was elected from Bastar division with 12 assembly segments in 2018 assembly polls; the rest of the seats had gone to Congress. Despite tight security, intelligence failure, non-adherence to SOPs and leakage of MLA’s tour plan were blamed to be the reasons of the attack.
