UKD's Trivendra Singh Panwar loses Deposit in Tehri Lok sabha bypoll

Written by Anil Singh

Although any entity can revive itself anytime. Still, a setback prolongs the recovery process. It's true with human, it's true with political parties as well.

The point of focus today, is a political party whose antiquity (history) goes beyond the BJP. The political party is Uttarakhand Kranti Dal.

Now split into two parts, the UKD (D) and UKD (P); the Uttarakhand Kranti Dal had a poor show in the assembly elections early this year. The only genuine regional party is  fast losing its ground in Uttarakhand, if the Oct 10 Tehri Lok sabha byepoll is any indication.

In the Tehri Lok sabha bypoll result, UKD (Panwar)party’s president Trivendra Singh Panwar got only 6939 votes and lost his deposit. Panwar’s performance was not only bad in the plains but also in the hills.

It's important here to note that the UKD (P) President contested the Tehri By-Poll amidst clear opposition from his party man, MLA Pritam Singh Panwar, who happens to be a minister in the Bahuguna Government. Mr. Pritam Singh Panwar wanted the party to support the Congress candidate, as the party is supporting Congress Government in Uttarakhand, from inside.

According to the UKD sources, the pressure is now mounting on Panwar to resign. Lets see how the situation develops.
