Chachoda Constituency Elections Results 2018: Congress candidate Lakshman Singh has won the Chachoda Constituency with 81908 votes. According to the Election Commission of India’s (ECI) website, Lakshman Singh won with a margin of 9797 votes. BJP candidate Mamta Meena, who won the Chanchoda seat in 2013, secured the second position with 72111 votes.  Chachoda seat falls under Rajgarh Lok Sabha area, which came into existence in 1951 and since then was held by the Congress. Even when Shivraj held the reigns of the state in 2003, the Vidhan Sabha seat was held by the Congress’ Shivnarayan Meena. It was in 2013 Assembly elections that BJP’s Mamta Meena wrested power from Shivnarine after securing 82779 votes in compared to the latter’s 47878 votes.

However, this time when the prospects of Congress coming to power are reported to be high, let alone pre-poll surveys that predict a thumping victory for the grand old party, the seat will witness a high-voltage contest between the incumbent Mamata Meena and Congress leader Digvijay Singh’s brother Laxman Singh.
