Chhattisgarh Assembly Election Results 2023: The three central observers including Arjun Munda, Sarbananda Sonowal and Dushyant Gautam appointed by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will visit Chhattisgarh on December 10 to hold the legislative party meeting, as the saffron party is yet to announce the next chief minister of the state after it won Assembly election, sources have said.

On BJP's CM face in Chhattisgarh, the party's MLA from Pathalgaon, Gomati Sai said, "As a small soldier of the BJP, I will follow the orders of the party's central leadership. We have immense faith on the party's central leadership and the decision they take will be in everyone's favour."
