Delhi Assembly Election Result 2020– Key 13 Seats: After a politically charged campaign and 62.59% polling on 8th February 2020; Delhi is all ready to get a new Chief Minister. With the incumbent Arvind Kejriwal being favoured by pollsters to retain power, it seems like Aam Admi Party is expected to comfortably form a government in Delhi. However, BJP is yet to give up its hope; in fact BJP Delhi Chief Manoj Tiwari has made a startling claim that his party will come to power with 48 seats, which has left many surprised. On the other hand, Congress - the party which ruled the state for three consecutive term, is unlikely to give a tough contest to either of them.

But, despite that the exit polls say; there are some seats that have always defined the way Delhi Assembly Election Results go. These key 13 seats have, traditionally, played an important role in deciding the next Chief Minister of Delhi. So, let’s check out the important seats / constituencies and their demographics along with previous election records to decode how they can swing this election?

New Delhi

New Delhi is probably the most watched assembly constituency seat in the Delhi Assembly Election Result 2020. The seat has given Delhi it’s last three Chief Ministers i.e. 2008 – Sheila Dixit and Arvind Kejriwal in 2013 and 2015 elections and has the history of electing the Chief Minister of the State for 5 consecutive terms now. Incidentally, New Delhi seat also marked the advent of AAP and Arvind Kejriwal in the Delhi Politics, when he defeated Sheila Dixit - the longest-serving chief minister of Delhi, as well as the longest-serving female chief minister of any Indian state. For 2020 elections, New Delhi Seat has maximum number of candidates i.e. 28 contesting against incumbent Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal.

Latest Update: Arvind Kejriwal has maintained a clear lead in the constituency. The two-time Chief Minister of Delhi leads by a margin of 19279 votes.

Chandni Chowk

Another iconic seat as far as Delhi Election Results 2020 are concerned is Chandni Chowk. The seat will see AAP turncoat and Incumbent MLA Alka Lamba seek re-election today; however, under the Congress symbol. Prior to joining AAP, Alka Lamba has had long standing association with Congress as a member of All India Congress Committee and Delhi University Students’ Union President from NSUI. Interestingly, Alka was also seen as an active participant in the anti-CAA protests at Jama Masjid, which was an important issue for the Delhi Elections.

In 2008 and 2013, the seat was won by Congress, while in 2015, Alka Lamba won it under AAP’s banner. In terms of demographic composition, the constituency has primarily Hindu voters with domination of traders. Chandni Chowk will see a bi-polar contest between Alka Lamba (INC) and Parlad Singh Sawhney (AAP).

Latest Update: Alka Lamba is trailing, AAP's Parlad Singh Sawhney is leading

Okhla (Shaheen Baug | Jamia)

Okhla has been the centre of the political storm as far as anti-CAA protests and agitation, which was a critical important issue in Delhi Elections that polarized the election campaign. Shaheen Baug, where anti-CAA protests have been going on since 15th December, and Jamia where police against student protesters, brought the anti-CAA protests to the limeline;  both these key locations fall under Okhla Assembly Constituency. At Okhla, AAP’s Incumbent MLA Amanatullah Khan is pitted against BJP’s Bhrama Singh, whereas, the Congress has fielded former Rajya Sabha MP Parvez Hashmi.

Demographically, the seat has domination of Muslim community along with Gujjar Community in nearby villages of Madanpur Khadar. The constituency also has urban middle class pockets such as Sarita Vihar and Jasola Vihar. AAP and Congress candidates, both of whom are Muslim will get support from Muslim Dominated areas of Shaheen Baug and Jamia, while BJP’s Bhrama Singh, who is a Gujjar will see support from voters from Madanpur Khadar.

Latest Update: AAP's Amanatullah Khan has regained lead in the constituency.

Rajinder Nagar

Rajinder Nagar is one of the few constituencies which might see an interesting contest between all three parties. Part of the West Delhi area, Rajinder Nagar has charming AAP spokesperson Raghav Chadha pitted against BJP’s Sardar RP Singh in a close battle. On the other hand, Congress has fielded former DUSU President and perhaps the youngest candidate in this election, Rocky Tuseed.

For 2020 election, AAP dropped its sitting MLA Vijender Garg Vijay who defeated BJP’s Sardar RP Singh in 2015, and picked Raghav Chadha in his place, which might lead to some backlash for the party. At the same time, Raghav Chadha – being a Punjabi-Khatri, will have the demographic advantage as the community forms sizable voter base in the constituency.

Latest Update: AAP's Raghav Chadha won by a margin of 20058 votes.

In the last three elections, Kalkaji has chosen all the three key parties; in 2008 Congress’s Subhash Chopra won the seat, while in 2013 Harmeet Singh of BJP won this seat. In 2015, Avtar Singh Kalkaji of AAP won in this seat by defeating Harmeet Singh Kalka of BJP.

Model Town

Model Town, which is part of the North Delhi district, will see BJP’s loudmouth Kapil Mishra, a former AAP minister, take on AAP’s Akhilesh Pati Tripathi and Congress’s Akanksha Ola.

Tughlakabad

Traditionally a BJP stronghold, Tughlakabad is all set to see a bi-polar contest between BJP’s Vikram Bidhuri and AAP’s siting MLA Sahi Ram Pehalwan. Congress has fielded Shubham Sharma from the seat. What makes  Tughlakabad an interesting contest is its demographic composition; which primarily consists of dominant Gujar community. Both Pehalwan and Bidhuri belong to the same community. BJP seems to have a slight advantage inn Tughlakabad as Vikram Bidhuri is nephew of BJP MP Ramesh Bidhuri – who won the seat in 2008 and 2013 elections.

Latest Update: AAP's Sahi Ram Pehalwan is leading currently from the constituency.

Mustafabad

Another constituency which is likely to see a three cornered contest on Delhi Election Result Day is Mustafabad – one of the three seats which BJP won in 2015. BJP’s win from Mustafabad in 2015 came across as a surprise to many because demographically it is a Muslim dominated seat. However, post-poll analysis shows that in 2015, the Muslim votes were divided between Congress and AAP which gave BJP an advantage.

For 2020 election, BJP’s Jagdish Pradhan seeks re-election and is pitted against Haji Yunus of AAP who has been a former MLA and Congress party’s Ali Mehndi. Congress candidate Ali Mehndi is son of former MLA Hasan Ahmad who won from Mustafabad in 2008 and 2013 elections.

Latest Update: AAP's Haji Yunus won by a margin of 20704 votes.
