BJP President Amit Shah today appointed Union ministers J P Nadda and Dharmendra Pradhan as party in-charge for the Assembly polls in Uttarakhand where it is striving to return to power by defeating ruling Congress.
He also appointed Union minister Prakash Javadekar as election incharge for the Manipur Assembly election. The polls in Uttarakhand due next year, have assumed an added significance after the saffron party’s determined bid to topple the Harish Rawat government failed.
While BJP’s ranks have been strengthened after a number of rebel Congress MLAs joined it, Chief Minister Harish Rawat believes that he will have sympathy of voters after he manged to keep BJP at bay.
BJP is carrying out a mass campaign there, accusing the Rawat government of corruption. In Manipur, which also goes to polls early next year, Congress has been in power for the last 15 years and BJP is working towards putting up a strong fight.
