Live updates | Satpal Maharaj wins, Harish Rawat among losers in Uttarakhand

Chief minister Harish Rawat, who lost from both Haridwar rural and Kichha, will meet governor K K Paul to tender his resignation after accepting defeat of the Congress in the Uttarakhand polls.

The BJP’s legislative party is expected to meet on Sunday or Monday to elect its leader, who would be the state’s next chief minister. BJP national president Amit Shah had said that legislators will elect their leader.

Three reasons why BJP won:

•People voted against Harish Rawat’s “autocratic” style of functioning and perceived corruption. Rawat’s projection as bahubali (strongman) by the Congress campaign managers also went against him.

•Prime Minister Narendra Modi promise of central funds and all around development of the state clicked with people.

•Modi’s demonetisation swung votes in favour of the saffron party as the Congress was seen supporting the corrupt and the rich by opposing the currency ban.
