New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party candidate Om Prakash Sharma on Tuesday headed to victory after taking a massive lead of 16,000 votes over AAP’s Deepak Singla. The final results are expected to be declared by evening.
Since 1993, Congress had registered victory from this seat thrice. The BJP, too, won it thrice — in 1993, 2003 and 2015. The difference between BJP’s Om Prakash Sharma and AAP’s Atul Gupta was of about 10,000 votes.
This year, all eyes were set on Deepak Singla, a businessman associated with the AAP since a long time.
BJP, on the other hand, had repeated its winning card, Om Prakash Sharma. From Congress, Gurcharan Singh Rau was in the fray.
