Political Issues in Uttarakhand

Narendra Modi is the face for whom and by which the BJP is campaigning for their support and Congress is constantly publicizing against Nishank,the former Chief Minister from BJP on the issue of corruption for 2010 Kumbh Mela.Nishank replied toughly that Rawat is to answer too as he was the M.P. then from Haridwar.Water,land ,unemployment etc are some important issues here which will be factors in this election.The devastating disaster in recent time in Uttarakhand is really has become a matter of touching issue though all the leaders of all parties are continually saying that this is not to be considered as a political issue.This is an emotional issue.But it is mentionable that a place of religious and economic heaven must be in light of politics as the hoteliers ,transporters are dreaming of rebuilding of the holy land.
