67 per cent of the 29,33,200 voters in the Naxal-affected Bastar region and Rajnandgaon district today exercised their franchise in the first phase of Chhattisagrh assembly elections, where violence by Naxals who have called for a poll boycott, left a CRPF jawan dead. Rajnandgaon, the home constituency of Raman Singh, recorded the highest 79 per cent voting out of 18 constituencies while one of the worst insurgency-hit Bijapur constituency witnessed the lowest 24 per cent voting. Other constituencies where polling took place today are Bhanupratappur (70per cent), Antagarh (58per cent), Kanker (76per cent), Keshkal (77per cent), Kondagaon (78per cent), Narayanpur (62per cent), Bastar (60per cent), Jagdalpur (67per cent), Chitrakot (61 per cent), Konta (40per cent) and Dantewada (67 per cent) of Bastar region and Khairagarh (71 per cent), Dongargarh (72 per cent), Dongargaon (76 per cent), Khujji (78 per cent ) and Mohla-Manpur (75 per cent) of Rajnandgaon.
