Gurgaon Lok Sabha Election SummaryComing into renewed existence in 2008, as part of the Delimitation Commission of India's recommendations, Gurgaon Lok Sabha constituency has altered the political balance in the state of Haryana in this general election. AAP candidate Yogendra Yadav, a renowned political scientist and one of Kejriwal's chief aides, has won with a thumping majority. Rao Inderjeet Singh defeated his closest rival Zakir Hussain
Congress pitched Dharampal against Singh, to cut into his vote share. Singh attacked Chief Minister of Haryana, Bhupinder Singh Hooda of the Congress, before shifting to the BJP. This angered the Congress who lobbied for Dharampal to ensure that Inderjeet Singh was defeated. In such circumstances, Yadav also hugely benefitted from the personal and political attacks of Dharampal against Singh. In this four- cornered political battle of Congress, BJP, AAP and INLD, Yadav cut into a prominent vote-share of both Congress and BJP. He also defeated the aspirations of INLD candidate Hussain, by also bagging a number of votes of the non-Muslims and the non-Yadavs in the constituency, who usually vote for INLD. Yadav's debut victory from Gurgaon has heightened the political prospects of the AAP as a whole.
Gurgaon is one of the 10 parliamentary constituencies in the state of Haryana, located in north India. This constituency first came into existence in 1955 and operated till the Lok Sabha elections of 1977, before which it was terminated.
