Gurdaspur By Election 2017

Polling was held for the Gurdaspur Lok Sabha constituency on 11 October 2017. The constituency had fallen vacant following the demise of Vinod Khanna, a member of the BJP, on 27 April 2017. 11 candidates are contesting in the by-election. A total of 1,522,000 voters are eligible to vote in the election. Out of this figure 712,077 are women. Around 1,781 polling stations have been established at 1,257 locations to ensure the smooth flow of elections.

The major players in the election are the Congress, the Aam Aadmi Party, and the BJP, which is in alliance with the Shiromani Akali Dal. For the BJP, which fared poorly at the assembly elections in March of this year, the election present a great chance to recover the lost ground. This election is also important for the Congress Party, since it would be the first one to be held under the new regime headed by Captain Amarinder Singh. Meanwhile, AAP already has four members from Punjab in the Lok Sabha and a win would surely enhance its reputation. Punjab unit chief Sunil Jakhar has been chosen by the Congress to contest the election. Swarn Salaria, a businessman, is contesting the elections on behalf of the BJP and AAP is fielding Suresh Khajuria, a retired Major General.
