Badli Assembly Election 2020: Purvanchali, Gujjar votes hold sway in semi-rural seat where AAP's sitting MLA locks horns with Congress' Devender Yadav

Badli Assembly Elections 2020: Badli, largely a rural constituency and one of the oldest villages in Delhi, is situated in North West Delhi. It consists of two urban villages namely, Badli and Samaypur, and three rural villages: Libaspur, Siraspur and Bhalswa.

Localities like Yadav Nagar, Jahangirpuri Resettlement Colony and Swaroop Nagar also come under the constituency. In the upcoming polls, AAP’s Ajesh Yadav will be seeking his second term in legislature from Badli. He is pitted against BJP's Vijay Bhagat and Congress' two-time MLA Devender Yadav.

Here is a brief profile of Badli constituency:

Constituency Name: Badli
Constituency Number: 5
District Name: North West Delhi
Total Electors: 223268
Female Electors: 95053
Male Electors: 128192
Third Gender: 23
Reserved: No

Results in previous elections: Devendra Yadav of the Congress was elected twice from Badli in 2009 and 2013 but he lost out to AAP's Ajesh Yadav in 2015 by a margin of 35,376 votes.

Demographics: Once upon a time, Badli used to be one of the biggest villages in the area. It’s a now a rural constituency in a largely urbanised Union Territory. Purvanchalis, who have migrated from Eastern UP and Bihar, could be a decisive factor in the constituency. The issue of regularisation of illegal colonies will be a big talking point in these elections as Badli contains around 32 unauthorised colonies and a few jhuggi jhopri clusters. Situated close to the Haryana border, Badli also has a sizeable population of Gujjars, who form at least five percent of Delhi’s electorate.
