Despite the setback to the BJP following the bribery allegations against former Union minister Dilip Singh Judeo, one of its chief ministerial aspirants, the Congress has failed to retain Chhattisgarh.

Not surprisingly, Chief Minister Ajit Jogi is not meeting anyone. His official residence Karuna wears a deserted look. The despondency is reflected in the Congress office too, which party workers have abandoned.

All the action is taking place in the BJP's office, which is teeming with party workers and mediapersons. The celebrations have already begun.

The result, with the BJP leading the Congress, is seen as a referendum on Jogi. Congress workers privately admit it's a vote against Jogi.
