It seems the BJP strategy of changing Chief Minister thrice had paid off in Uttarakhand . As the initial trends and the numbers show , incumbent chief minister Pushkar Singh Dhami is set to return to power in the hill state. Congress once again has failed to capitalise on BJP’s change of leadership gamble. Senior Congress Leader and former CM Harish Rawat as campaign face did not click with the people.

As per CNN-IBN report and the time of filing this report  , BJP is leading in 47, Congress 19 while others 4 in the 70 member assembly

What come as a shock to the BJP , current  Chief Minister Pushkar Dhami has lost from Khatima by 7000 votes to Congress candidate Bhuwan Chandra Kapri

Senior Congress Leader and former Chief Minister Harish Rawat too tasted defeat after his loss from Lalkuan in Uttarakhand’s Nainital district.

The polling was held in the state on February 14 with more than 65 per cent of the electorate casting their votes. The ruling BJP is seeking a second consecutive term in office this time, something which has never happened in the state’s 21-year history. Routed in the 2017 assembly polls with a tally of 11 seats against the BJP’s 57, the Congress is trying to stage a comeback.
