Bawana goes to AAP

The Aam Aadmi Party comfortably retained the Bawana Assembly constituency, leaping way ahead of BJP and Congress, redeeming some lost pride following a string of poll defeats in recent times. The AAP candidate, Ram Chander, bagged 59,886 votes while the BJP, which had fielded AAP turncoat Ved Parkash as its candidate, finished a distant second with 35,834 votes. Congress's Surender Kumar trailed closely behind with 31,919 votes.

The constituency, situated on the northern periphery of the city, is a mix of slum clusters, villages and has a huge poorvanchali (migrants from east UP, Bihar) voter base, factors which combined to propel the AAP to victory. For the BJP, the loss comes barely four months into its total domination in the municipal polls and a sweep of the Rajouri Garden bypolls.
