Uttarakhand election results -Full List of Winners: The Bharatiya Janata Party made Uttarakhand its stronghold after it won all the 5 Lok Sabha seats during the 2014 general elections. The BJP performed an encore in the Assembly polls in 2017, where they won 57 of the 70 seats in the state. For the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the saffron party has repeated three of its five sitting MPs, including Mala Rajyalaxmi Shah (Tehri Garhwal) and state BJP president Ajay Bhatt from Nainital-Udhamsingh Nagar seat.
It will be a three-way contest in the state with the SP-BSP alliance throwing in the hat. The Bahujan Samaj Party would be fielding its candidates from four seats, while the Samajwadi Party was to field its candidate from the Garhwal seat. The Akhilesh Yadav-led party failed to field a candidate, narrowing down the competition between sitting MP and BJP leader Tirath Singh Rawat and Congress’ Manish Khanduri. The only instance when the BSP or SP has won a seat across the five Lok Sabha seats in Uttarakhand was in 2004, when the Samajwadi Party won the Haridwar (SC) seat.
Here winners in the 5 Lok Sabha seats in Uttarakhand:
1) Tehri Garhwal – Mala Rajya Laxmi Shah (BJP)
2) Garhwal- Tirath Singh Rawat (BJP)
3) Almora – Ajay Tamta (BJP)
4) Nainital- Ajay Bhatt (BJP)
5) Haridwar – Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ (BJP)
