New Delhi Lok Sabha Elections and Results 2014


New Delhi 2014 Lok Sabha Elections Summary

One 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.
In the 2014 General Elections, the New Delhi constituency has been won by Meenakshi Lekhi of BJP. She received a total of 453350 votes, defeating her closest rival Ashish Khetan of AAP by a huge margin of 162708 votes.

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.
Prominent political leaders such as former Prime Minister of the country Atal Bihari Vajpayee and former Deputy Prime Minister Lal Krishna Advani of the BJP, as well as other BJP stalwarts like Jagmohan have been Members of Parliament from the New Delhi seat and have represented it from the very beginning. It was represented for the first two terms by the revolutionary leader Sucheta Kripalani, who began the Kisan Majdoor Praja Party and later associated herself with the Congress. This constituency came into existence in 1951, and has remained one of the main BJP bastions, as the party won the seat majority times. It was in the New Delhi constituency that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of the Congress lost to Jagmohan of the BJP in a close fight in the 1999 general elections. However, the Congress has held sway over the New Delhi seat for the last two Lok Sabha elections of 2004 and 2009. With a population of 21,753,486, the New Delhi parliamentary seat is a considerably populated constituency. Being one of the most historically prominent regions of Delhi, this constituency stretches across regions such as Rajpath, Janpath, and Connaught Place, besides housing the Parliament Houses and the Delhi Secretariat. Till 2008, the constituency consisted of six segments. According to the Delimitation of Parliamentary and Constituencies Order of 2008, the reorganization of the Assembly segments was done in 2008 to finalize on 10 Assembly segments which comprise this noteworthy Parliamentary constituency. Some of the must-visit places in the New Delhi constituency are the Rashtrapati Bhavan, the India Gate, National Museum, Qutub Minar, Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, Lakshminarayan Temple, Sacred Heart Church, Gandhi Smriti, among others.
