    Five constituencies going to polls today

    Five parliamentary constituencies in the state are going to polls today to set the precedent for the next government. Tehri Garhwal, Haridwar, Nainital, Almora, Garhwal.

    In Haridwar, the overall voter sentiment seems inclined towards the BJP, but the interior pockets, which have a significant number of Muslim and SC/ST votes, are largely looking at the BSP as the possible alternative. As for the state’s only regional party, the Uttarakhand Kranti Dal, it will be fighting from all five seats; UKD had failed to secure a single seat in the last two Lok Sabha polls.
