Tranquil and serene Uttarakhand is known as 'Devbhoomi', the abode of the gods, but politically the state has seen its fair-share of instability. Ever since its inception, Uttarakhand has oscillated between the BJP and the Congress rule but with so many leaders defecting from party flanks, where does the political fulcrum of the state ultimately lie? What do locals in Uttarakhand want from the upcoming polls? What has the track record of the Congress and the BJP been on key issues like gender, minority rights, youth, employment and ecology, and can the state ever see the emergence of a 'third front' which prides people's welfare over political gains? Find out as we put both political parties to the test in this special edition of For and Against.
