Why fight is equally poised?

After the Delimitation

  • Presence of a sizeable number of Vaish – Punjabis (30%) & Scheduled Caste (SC) electorates.
  • Addition of seven more Assembly constituencies & removal of Paharganj, Chandni Chowk
  • Share of Muslims voters has reduced to 15%
  • Presence of SC votes may turn out to be tough both for Congress & BJP

Key Candidates in the fray

Key Local Issues 2014:
