As the state of Uttarakhand is all set to cast their votes on all five Lok Sabha seats on April 11, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is campaigning in the name of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the campaigns of the Congress candidates are focussed on targeting the Modi government. Interesting, one would notice that in the state of Uttarakhand the election is between PM Modi and the Congress candidates in Tehri, Pauri Garhwal, Nainital-Udham Singh Nagar, Almora, and Haridwar Lok Sabha seats. The saffron party, which had won 57 of the 70 seats in the state Assembly polls in 2017, leaving Congress with only 11 seats, has an advantage over the grand old party which had won all five Uttarakhand Lok Sabha seats in 2009 but had faced a debacle in 2014 losing them all to the BJP.
