New Delhi: The counting of votes for the 70 seats in Uttarakhand assembly elections 2017 will start at 8am. The first election trends and results are expected within an hour. The assembly polls are being seen as a referendum on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s popularity and his reforms agenda, particulary demonetisation.

Exit poll results on Thursday predicted victory for BJP in Uttarakhand with the saffron party unseating Congress chief minister Harish Rawat. A party needs to win 36 seats to be in comfortable majority.
