This state even has a population of about 3 crores according to 2011 census. The state is home to diverse cultures and traditions. It has 8 districts. With Manik Sarka on the CM throne, the state is currently run by the Communist Party of India.

Otherwise, there are chances for the CPI and Congress to form a coalition for forming the government if no one gets the required number of seats.

While we discuss all the stuff about the state elections 2018 and the Loksabha elections in the coming days. I actually wanted to bring a point before you and that is the importance of the vote. Voting is very important in a democratic country like India that has a huge population. Don’t neglect your vote, it’s your right to decide who governs you. You have to utilize your right to vote if you need to question the government.
