With elections around the corner, the most important question at this moment is who is the most preferred prime ministerial candidate for the upcoming poll? The opinion poll conducted by the News Nation in Uttarakhand shows that 52 per cent of the people feel that Narendra Modi is the most favourable prime ministerial candidate in 2019 Lok Sabha polls. However, 23 per cent of people want Rahul Gandhi to run the country.
In 2014, BJP won all five Lok Sabha seats in the state. By winning all five seats, BJP had balanced its 5-0 defeat in the 2009 general election. The Congress fought the 2014 general election under the leadership of CM Harish Rawat because other senior leaders were seen reluctant to participate in campaigning.
As per the News Nation poll survey in the state, the BJP is projected to win 4 seats whereas the Congress may bag 1. The other parties may win one seat each in 2019 General Elections. As far as the vote share is concerned, the BJP is likely to get 42 per cent of vote share, the Congress may get 34 per cent of votes, and the other parties may get 7 per cent of vote share, predicted News Nation Opinion Poll.
When asked about the biggest issue which they will keep in mind while voting for Lok Sabha Elections, 29 per cent people voted for employment, Corruption (11 per cent), inflation (13 per cent) and basic infrastructure (8 per cent) are some other important issues which people of the state will consider at the time of voting.
The most important thing is that 37 per cent people found substance in Congress chief Rahul Gandhi's allegations against the Modi government over Rafale jet deal and 35 per cent found it baseless. During the opinion poll, News Nation found that 43 per cent people of the state are of the opinion that development has been the Modi government's prime focus. When asked whether the Modi government is giving a befitting reply to China and Pakistan, 46 per cent of people in Haryana said 'Yes'.
