In the most emphatic win ever registered in Uttarakhand’s 22-year history, chief minister Pushkar Singh Dhami on Friday registered a huge victory against Congress’s Nirmala Gahtori in the bypoll for the Champawat seat.

The win has ensured Dhami is set to continue as CM. The saffron surge during the bypoll was such that Congress drew a blank at three polling booths, received votes in single digits at 32 booths and couldn’t cross 100 votes at a single booth.
