Family members of Vijay Bahuguna and Harish Rawat to contest LS polls in Uttarakhand

Chief Minister Harish Rawat’s wife Renuka Rawat and former Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna’s son Saket Bahuguna figure in list of candidates announced by the Congress today for the Lok Sabha elections in Uttarakhand.

While Rawat’s wife has been fielded from Haridwar, represented by the Chief Minister in the past, Saket will contest from Tehri Garwhal, a constituency from where his father had won the 2009 Lok Sabha polls.

The third candidate finalised by Congress is senior Minister in the State government, Harak Singh Rawat, who will contest the Pauri Garwhal seat represented by Satpal Maharaj, who recently switched over to the BJP from Congress.
