Uttarakhand Assembly By Polls Schedule
Assembly By Election in Uttarakhand to one seat had taken place on Friday, 25th November 2019.
After the unanticipated demise of sitting MLA and Cabinet Minister Prakash Pant in June, the candidature of his wife Chandra Pant was announced by the ruling BJP in Uttarakhand. The finalisation of the names for the by-poll on assembly seat in Uttarakhand was made by the party’s central election committee.
The counting of the votes was slated to commence on November 28th. Around 47 per cent of the voters cast their poll in the Pithoragarh Assembly Bypoll.
The Election Commission officials said that the casting for the by-polls to one Uttarakhand Assembly constituency would take place on Thursday morning amidst tight security. Subsequently, BJP’s Chandra outplayed her Congress opponent Anju Lunthi by over 3,000 polls to triumph the Pithoragarh Assembly Bypoll and preserved the seat for the party.
According to Pithoragarh District Magistrate cum returning officer VK Jogdande, 26,086 polls were registered by Chandra Pant against Lunthi’s 22,819 overpowering her by a margin of 3,267 polls. While going through the casting, the BJP was leading by more than 1,000 polls in the by election to Pithoragarh Assembly seat in Uttarakhand.
BJP’s Chandra Pant was continuously ahead of her nearest opponent Anju Lunthi of the congress by the margin of 1,197 polls.
The grand slam was anticipated well in advance, Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat said. ‘We are happy to preserve our seat with a big number of margin. We are thankful to the people of the electorate for reposing their faith in us once again’, he added.
‘Apart from the persistent jobs done by my party workers, it is the outcome of the hard work and developmental deeds done by my late husband’, the sentimental Chandra Pant acknowledged the victory. She assured all the balloters in the constituency to try to meet their expectations who poured their love and warmth over her.
Political experts analysed the situation and claimed that Chandra Pant’s candidature from Pithoragarh in Kumaon region of Uttarakhand was BJP’s endeavour to accumulate sympathy votes in the wave of the sitting MLA’s untimely demise.
Prakash Pant was a leading and eminent leader in Uttarakhand who controlled the key Parliamentary Affairs and Finance portfolios in Trivendra Singh Rawat’s cabinet. He led Congress’s Mayukh Mahar and triumphed the seat in 2017 Assembly Elections by the comfortable margin of 2,684 polls. Posterior to the refusal of Mahar for contesting this time, Congress sent the candidature for Lunthi for the seat. Both parties had put in all their efficacy into the rallies to bolster their luck.
The 2017 Uttarakhand Legislative Assembly Elections were the 4th Vidhan Sabha poll of the state of Uttarakhand in India. Uttarakhand Legislative Assembly witnessed the 69 seats in the elections held on 15th February 2017. Around 65% voters cast polls for the 69 seats of Uttarakhand Legislative Assembly.

Lunthi who was fielded by the Congress broke down to Chandra. There was no sign of setback on her face as it was a learning practice for her. She declared that since she was contending for the first time, she has gained a lot in this voting. The party workers and the backing of the balloters were the great sources of my motivation for the next elections.
