PM Narendra Modi addressed an election rally in Srinagar of Uttarakhand on Sunday. While Congress is going to the polls with a definite face in Harish Rawat, BJP has left people guessing about who would get the top office if the latter is voted to power, the presence of too many strong turncoats on its side only adding to the confusion.
