Nestled beside the roaring waters of two mighty rivers that often flood the land, Chandrapur parliamentary constituency harks back to a time when stones ruled the earth. Its name, derived from the ancient word for the Moon, echoes its deep-rooted history spanning over 25,000 years, dating back to the Stone Age era.

Since the dawn of political tribes in 1952, Chandrapur has witnessed a tribal dance of power. The Congress clan has claimed victory 11 times, showcasing its dominance over the land. However, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) warriors have also left their mark, winning the battle four times. Other tribes, like the Janata Party and independent candidates, have also taken the helm once each, adding to the colorful tapestry of political history in Chandrapur.

In the recent past, the land of Chandrapur defied the roaring winds of the BJP-wave in 2019. The late Suresh N. Dhanorkar, a stalwart of the Congress clan, emerged victorious, proving the resilience of his tribe even in turbulent times. His triumph was a beacon of hope for the grand old party, which faced a daunting challenge in the state.

Over the ages, Chandrapur has seen a diverse array of rulers, from former royalty to tribal leaders and stalwarts of political dynasties. Its rich mineral reserves, including coal and other precious resources, have made it a coveted land for warriors seeking wealth and power.

As the tribes prepare for the upcoming battle, Chandrapur stands as a testament to resilience, a land where history intertwines with modern politics, and where the echoes of ancient dynasties still resonate in the rocks, fossils, and minerals that define its essence.
