Sai, a prominent tribal face of the BJP, was on Sunday elected as the leader of the BJP legislative party. The BJP-appointed central observers Arjun Munda, Sarbananda Sonowal and Dushyant Kumar Gautam had flown to Raipur and convened the meeting of newly elected party MLA-elects.

The decision to pick Sai was nine taken days after the saffron party stunned everyone by wresting Chhattisgarh from the Congress. The BJP won 54 out of 90 seats and reduced the Congress to just 35 seats. The Gondwana Gantantra Party managed to win one seat. Out of the 29 reserved seats for scheduled tribes, the BJP won 17, up from the three it won in 2018.

“As chief minister, I will try to fulfil Modi’s guarantees (BJP’s pre-poll promises) through my government. Sanctioning 18 lakh (1.8 million) houses to beneficiaries of the housing scheme will be the first thing to be done," Sai had said after his appointment to the top post.
