New Delhi 2014 Lok Sabha Elections SummaryOne of the 7 Parliamentary constituencies in the National Capital Territory of Delhi, the New Delhi Lok Sabha seat is one of the most prestigious constituencies in the national political scenario of India.
This seat has witnessed political contestations among some of the most prominent leaders of the different political parties. Ajay Maken of the Congress, Meenakshi Lekhi of the BJP, Ashish Khetan of the AAP and veteran actor Biswajit Chatterjee of the TMC fought the elections from New Delhi constituency in the recently-held general elections. Interestingly, both Lekhi and Khetan have remained first time candidates. Taking on Congress General Secretary and spokesperson Ajay Maken who remained the MP from this constituency in the 14th and 15th Lok Sabha respectively, Lekhi drew immense support of the masses in the constituency.
The battle for New Delhi heated up when the Congress performed poorly in the Assembly elections to Delhi in 2013. However, Maken believed that the Congress would not perform so dismally in the Lok Sabha, as the general elections are fought on very different grounds as compared to Vidhan Sabha elections. While, Ajay Maken was a force to reckon with, the general anti-incumbency in the country was always a worry for the Congress MP. Meanwhile, newbie Meenakshi Lekhi spared no effort to reach out to voters and also hoped that the Modi wave would prop up her campaign for this prestige seat. But quietly making inroads, in a strategically planned door-to-door campaign was journalist-turned politician Ashish Khetan.
A powerhouse seat, New Delhi has had the likes of Atal Bihari Vajpayee & Lal Krishna Advani represent the seat. So, a win from here, for Meenakshi Lekhi for the first time, has definitely been a boost for her political prospects.
Being the capital city of the country, New Delhi determines a great deal of the political discourse of India. 1,373,146 is the total electorate count in the New Delhi Lok Sabha Constituency (constituency number 4). Out of these 767,222 number of electorates are males and the remaining 605,924 are belong to the female category as the Election commission of India 2009 reports suggest.
