Dehradun: Both BJP and Congress would be hoping for a ‘Terrific Tuesday’ as counting of votes cast in Uttarakhand’s civic polls began two days after polling in 84 urban local bodies (ULB).
Seen as a verdict on how the ruling BJP is performing, the results could show the mirror to the Trivendra Singh Rawat government which came to power in March of last year. The BJP had won 57 out of a total of 70 assembly seats in the state in March last year to storm to power. Political observers feel that the urban local body election is going to be a high-stakes battle for the ruling party as it has to match its own impressive performance of the assembly elections last year.
