Kalkaji Election Result 2020 LIVE Updates | Delhi Assembly Elections; Constituency, Party, Candidate Name Wise Winner, Loser, Leading, Trailing

Kalkaji Assembly Election 2020 | Perhaps replacing incumbent AAP MLA Avtar Singh Kalkaji with well-known AAP face Atishi Marlena was probably not an electorally wise decision for the party as she is currently trailing to Dharambir Singh of the BJP. Atishi has gathered 2,538 against Singh's 2,729 so far with the former getting 44.75 percent and the latter getting 48.12 percent vote share so far.

The electoral battle at Kalkaji has taken a high-profile turn with the entry of Marlena as the AAP candidate from the Assembly constituency. Kalkaji voted along with 69 other Assembly seats in the upcoming Delhi Assembly election on 8 February.

The Assembly constituency, which comes under the South Delhi Lok Sabha constituency, saw a dramatic change in its demographics after delimitation when low incomes areas were added to it. The result of the Atishi versus Dharamveer Singh, BJP's candidate for the seat, and Congress' Shivani Chopra will be announced on 11 February when the votes will be counted.

Here's a brief profile on the constituency:

Constituency Name: Kalkaji
Constituency Number: 51
District Name: South Delhi
Total Electors: 1,64,319
Female Electors: 72,236
Male Electors: 92,072
Third Gender: 11
Reserved: No

Results in previous elections: Delhi Congress chief Subhash Chopra won the seat thrice between 1998 and 2008. However, he narrowly lost to Harmeet Kalka of the BJP in the 2013 polls. In the 2015 Assembly polls, Kalka lost to AAP’s Avtar Singh by a margin of fewer than 20,000 votes.

Demographics: The constituency has a diverse mix of population with a sizeable number of Punjabi refugees, Purvanchalis, slum and JJ (jhuggi jhopdi) dwellers residing under it. In fact, there are 25 slum clusters that constitute a major chunk of the vote bank for AAP and Congress in the constituency.

Maharani Bagh, Ishwar Nagar, New Friends Colony, Bharat Nagar, Sarai Jullena, Masih Garh, Sriniwaspuri, East of Kailash, Garhi East of Kailash, Sukhdev Vihar, Shyam Nagar, Kalkaji, Giri Nagar and Govind Puri are some of the localities in the constituency.
