Dehradun Even as BJP is hopeful of change of guard in 2017 state election, Congress party leaders are confident of retaining power keeping in view the low polling percentage this time.

The Congress leaders, including PCC president Kishore Upadhyay, feel that this election may reverse the trend of alternate government formation in the state. They have claimed that latest poll figures for Uttarakhand released by the office of chief electoral officer is an indicative of fact that anti incumbency against Harish Rawat government was negligible. The Congress leadership has also claimed that voters are willing to give another chance to Harish Rawat.
