The latest Uttarkhand Opinion Poll by ABP News-C Voters suggests BJP could emerge as the single largest party. As per the poll, BJP may win around 31-37 seats while Congress may win 30-37 seats. Aam Aadmi Party may be able to open its accounts as the poll shows AAP winning 2-4 seats.
The 2022 Uttarakhand Assembly election will decide if the state continues with its trend of flipping the incumbent government or retaining the incumbent government. The current term of Assembly in Uttarakhand will end on 23rd March 2022.
After coming to power in 2017 riding on the back of the popularity of PM Modi and anti-incumbency, the BJP decided to make Member of Legislative Assembly from Doiwala, Trivendra Singh Rawat as the Chief Minister of the state. However, after four years, due to the massive unpopularity of Trivendra Singh Rawat among the people, party legislators, and the RSS, the party decided to change the CM and appointed Tirarth Singh Rawat, MP from Garhwal as the CM.
However, after a period of 116 days, he too had to resign! Such is the anti-incumbency against the party that they feared that if he had contested the by-poll, he would end up losing and it would be terrible optics for the upcoming assembly election.
Both Tirath Singh and Trivendra Rawat attracted more criticism than appreciation for their work.
Thus Pushkar Singh Dhami, MLA from Khatima was selected as the CM and he is the youngest CM the state has ever had.
This chaos has led to a strong talk of BJP being ousted out of power in the upcoming Uttarakhand election in 2022, the Congress party unit in the state too is filled with enthusiasm and determination to defeat the BJP. But just like the BJP, the INC has no shortage of internal problems of its own such as weak central leadership and massive infighting
The last few years have seen a meltdown of the BSP vote share and the rise of AAP in the state. It is very unlikely that AAP can come to power on its own but it is certain to make good inroads and amass a considerable vote share. The question on everyone’s minds is whose votes will the AAP eat into?
