New Delhi: 

As 18 seats in Chhattisgarh go to polls on Monday, an analysis of data collated by research body ADR or Association of Democratic Reforms shows that most number of rich candidates are from arch-rivals BJP and Congress.

Both BJP and Congress are fighting on all the 18 seats, and 72 per cent of their candidates or 13 each from both the parties have assets of over Rs 1 crore.

The richest candidate is Devwrat Singh of Ajit Jogi’s Janta Congress Chhattisgarh (JCC) who is fighting from the Khairagarh seat. Mr Singh has assets of over Rs 119.55 crore.

Chief Minister Raman Singh is among the top three richest candidate with total assets of over 10.7 crore. He is fighting the elections from the Rajnandgaon constituency and is being challenged by Congress’ Karuna Shukla, niece of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
