Uttarakhand Elections results 2017: BJP to form government
BJP will form government in Uttarakhand with voting results giving full majority to it . It is evident from the voting result that congress is going to be routed, and BJP is forming government with full majority in . BJP is all set to sweep the state. The state saw its highest-ever turnout ever with 68 per cent voting across its 70 assembly constituencies. A high voter turnout was conventionally seen as a vote for change and the BJP was confident of winning with full majority and that holds true in Uttarakhand. It had lost the chance to form government in the hill state by a whisker five years ago, when the Congress had won 32 seats and the BJP 31. Most exit polls had given the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) a clean sweep in the state and that proved true.
