Uttarakhand Assembly Elections 2017

The BJP won 57 seats out of the 70 results declared. It would indeed form the government on its own. The Congress party has managed to win only 11 seats, while Independents won 2 seats. The chief minister of Uttarakhand Harish Rawat lost the election as well.

The Exit polls had predicted a close contest in the state with a slight edge to the BJP. But they have been proved wrong as it is a convincing victory for the BJP in the state. Development was one of the major issues in the elections. Earlier, Harish Rawat had managed to survive an attempt to topple his government and had played the victim card, but the results show that it did not work.
