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

Model Town Assembly Elections 2020: BJP's Kapil Mishra is leading from Model Town Assembly constituency. Mishra, a former AAP leader who defected into BJP in 2019, has often remained controversial and even accused Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Health Minister Satyendar Jain of corruption. He represented Karawal Nagar earlier.

His vicious campaign also led to the Election Commission imposing a 48-hour ban on him.

Model Town, part of the Chandni Chowk Lok Sabha constituency, is a largely affluent area. However, it also has a significant population living in slums.

In these elections too, he ran an acerbic candidate polarising votes on the basis of CAA and NRC.

Part of the Chandni Chowk Lok Sabha constituency, the largely affluent area of Model Town is likely to see a triangular contest as the Congress will look to wrest its former stronghold from the AAP and deny BJP the chance to regain the seat for the first time after the 1993 polls.

The AAP has renominated Akhilesh Pati Tripathi to fight from the seat. Tripathi had come under scrutiny as he has been the legal radar for rioting and assaulting the police in 2013. He will be up against controversial former AAP MLA Kapil Mishra, who is contesting on a BJP ticket. Sharma, who was ousted from the AAP, faced a 48-hour campaigning ban last week after he compared the elections in Delhi to "India vs Pakistan". The Congress has nominated Akansha Ola, a secretary of the Mahila Congress. The constituency goes to the polls on 8 February and the results will be announced on 11 February.
