Uttarakhand : Since the formation of the state, the BJP has been expressing confidence in only one candidate from the Ramnagar assembly seat. This time also BJP has fielded MLA Diwan Singh Bisht. Bisht has become the BJP candidate for the fifth time in a row. Till now they have won twice as well as lost twice.
The hold of Diwan Singh Bisht, who has been associated with the RSS for years, is considered strong in the BJP. This is the reason why he has been getting tickets continuously since 2002. Even after facing defeat in 2002, the party gave him the ticket again in 2007. In this he won. In the 2012 elections, Congress candidate Amrita Rawat defeated Dewan Singh Bisht.
After this, in 2017, the current market president Rakesh Nainwal was believed to have a strong hold. Due to the 2012 defeat, Rakesh Nainwal was vigorously asking for tickets. But at the last moment, the BJP reposed faith in the Diwan itself. The result of the victory in 2017 was that this time also the party has reposed faith in Bisht.
