New Delhi: The counting of votes for Chandni Chowk assembly seat in Delhi was carried out amid high security. Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)’s Parlad Singh Sawhney is leading by over 65% votes.
Although the smallest constituency by number, Delhi’s Chandni Chowk is one of the most high-prestige and prominent seats for fighting the electoral battle. The seat is currently held by MLA Alka Lamba who was expelled from the Aam Aadmi Party in 2019 after she jumped ship to the Congress.
Lamba is seeking re-election this time from the crucial Assembly seat with a Congress ticket, against the AAP’s Parlad Singh Sawhney and Suman Kumar Gupta from BJP, while Sudesh Saroliya from the BSP is also in the fray.
