Uttarakhand electoral equation
The term of the 70-seat Uttarakhand Legislative Assembly is ending on 23 March 2022. But, the political stir is intensifying in the state. Here along with Congress, BJP, Aam Aadmi Party, BSP and many small parties are going to try their luck. However, the Uttarakhand election remains the most challenging for the BJP, as it has a tradition of changing power every five years for two decades. In such a situation, the Congress is fully hoping that it should come back to power. At the same time, BJP is busy breaking the myth of change of power.
In the 2017 assembly elections in Uttarakhand, BJP won 57 seats and formed its government with a thumping majority. While the opposition Congress could get only 11 seats. Then Trivendra Singh Rawat became the Chief Minister, but after removing him only after four years, BJP handed over the command of power to Tirath Singh Rawat. But within a few months, Pushkar Singh Dhami was made the Chief Minister of Uttarakhand in place of Tirath Singh Rawat.
