Gurgaon Lok Sabha Election Summary
Coming 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 of Indian National Lok Dal by a margin of 274722 votes. Yadav received 644780 votes. Rao Inderjeet Singh, now the BJP candidate, three- time MLA from Badshahpur, Rao Dharampal was the Congress candidate from this constituency while Zakir Hussain was candidate from Indian National Lok Dal. Sitting Gurgaon MP Rao Inderjeet Singh, who represented the Congress in the 2009 elections, fought the battle on a BJP ticket this time. The strong anti-incumbency wave hit Singh hard, as his support among Gurgaon's voters dwindled. Newbie Yadav, known for his commitment towards masses, campaigned hard raising questions over the declared assets of the Congress and BJP candidates from Gurgaon. Yadav hinted at the unholy nexus of the builders and politicians in Gurgaon, by claiming that these politicians were hiding majority of their assets, which amounted to hundreds of crores. Academic turned politician Yogendra Yadav campaigned on a door to door basis in this constituency, winning the hearts and minds of many erstwhile Congress and BJP supporters.
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.
