A day before the polls, candidates carried out silent campaigning and took rest. With folded hands, the candidates met voters and sought their support.

They, however, were cautious while meeting people fearing any action from the election commission as gathering of more than five people is not allowed with mode code of conduct (MCC) in force.

Congress state president Pritam Singh, who is also the party’s candidate from Tehri Garhwal seat, spent a few hours in the party headquarters in Dehradun. He met supporters and locals but for not more than two minutes to avoid crowd gathering. Thereafter, he met some people in Gandhi Road area of the city before going home to take rest.

BJP candidate from the seat Mala Rajya Laxmi Shah opted out of door-to-door campaign, but met booth-level party workers near her house.

In the Nainital-Udhamsingh Nagar seat, Ajay Bhatt of the BJP and Harish Rawat of the Congress spent most of their day meeting people.

Bhatt spend his morning and afternoon meeting locals in Rudrapur, Nainital and Kashipur while Rawat spent his day meeting people in Haldwani and Rudrpaur in the morning before heading back to Haldwani to meet a few more locals.

BJP candidate from Haridwar constituency, met party workers at his camp office before meeting voters in pockets of Doiwala, Roorkee and Haridwar. Congress candidate Ambrish Kumar held a meeting with party leaders before meeting some voters in Haridwar city.

In Almora and Pauri constituencies also, candidates made public connect by meeting people.
