Outline of Chhattisgarh

The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to Chhattisgarh:

Chhattisgarh – state in central India. The state was formed on 1 November 2000 by partitioning 27 Chhattisgarhi-speaking southeastern districts of Madhya Pradesh.


"Parpodi," also known as "Raja Parpodi," (Hindi: परपोड़ी) is a town and a Nagar Panchayat in the Bemetara district of Chhattisgarh, India.

The town is situated in the district of Bemetara in the state of Chhattisgarh, India. It has a small population and has been declared a "Nagar Panchayat" of the Bemetara district.

Situated along the Durg-Kabirdham road, the town is easily accessible by road from the city of Bemetara /Durg/Raipur , which was the ancient citadel of the Gondwana dynasty, is known for being a historical, religious, and cultural venue. According to popular legend, the name of the town was given after the name of the last Zamindar aunt "Parmeshwari Devi."

Most of Parpodi is rigid ground.

On 28 May 2013 Parpodi became a Nagar Panchayat with district headquarters at BEMETARA itself but formally this town is under of Durg District, it is now in the Bemetara district. The town is under Saja assembly, and Mr. Labachand Bafna is the current MLA of the area. Since 1 January 2012 Parpodi has been under the administration of the Bemetara district of Chhattisgarh.

Saja, Chhattisgarh

Saja is an assembly constituency under Saja in Chhattisgarh, India.


The seat came into existence in 1967 and has been an INC and Choubey family stronghold. Before Shri Ravindra Choubey, his elder brother Shri Pradeep Choubey and his mother Smt. Kumari Devi have also won from this seat.

Shri Ravindra Choubey has been elected 6 times from this seat, from 1985 till 2008 and is popularly known as Maharaj ji in the area.

Current MLA: Shri Labh Chand Baphna (Jain), BJP

Shri Ravindra Choubey is a tall leader from the seat who had won since 1985, with the exception of 2013, where it is believed that Shri Ajit Jogi(former CM, Chhattisgarh) made focussed efforts to defeat Shri Ravindra Choubey, due to internal rift. The fundamental caste equation of the seat also tends to be in favour of the INC with major castes i.e. Sahus and Satnamis being more inclined towards INC and the other major caste Lodhis being traditional BJP supporters. Furthermore a poor image of sitting BJP MLA Shri Baphna makes this seat tough for BJP.


OBCs and General comprise around 80% of the population, with OBCs in majority. Among OBCs, Lodhis are in majority, followed by Telis and then Kurmis. There are total 1.4 lakh voters in the constituency. There are two major tehsils Durg and Dhamdha and four nagar panchayats in the region- Deokar, Saja, Thankhamaria and Parpaudi nagar panchayat. Lodhis are majorly concentrated in Saja and Thankhamaria while OBCs are majorly in Saja and Deokar region

Key Political Issues

Major resentment among the farming community as majority of them grow tomatoes and they have had to sell their produce at Rs. 1/kg. Lack of any agro processing plant, irregular distribution of Fasal Bima claims and drought-like situation has further added to their woes.

No action against illegal sand mafia has been taken.

Lack of employment opportunities, clean drinking water and bad condition of roads are other major issues here. Cultural and Geographical view
