In 2014, the seat was won by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate Meenakshi Lekhi, defeating Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) Ashish Khetan. Lekhi is contesting for re-elections this year, competing against the Congress’ Ajay Maken and AAP’s Brijesh Goyal.
News18-IPSOS Survey suggests that BJP’s Meenakshi Lekhi may re-emerge as the winner in the triangular contest between the three leading candidates, with the Congress’ Ajay Maken and AAP’s Brijesh Goel trailing behind.
The New Delhi constituency is the residence of the President, the Prime Minister, and homes the Supreme Court, Central Government offices, judicial, military and legislative enclave.
