Prime Minister Narendra Modi says that Congress has lost the trust of the people, they are not getting candidates, that is why the royal family of Congress will not vote for their own party in Delhi for the first time. In fact, there is no Congress candidate in the New Delhi Lok Sabha seat where major Congress leaders like Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra are voters. That is why Prime Minister Modi said that the royal family of Congress will not vote for their own party in Delhi. For the New Delhi Lok Sabha seat, this time it is a direct contest between the Aam Aadmi Party and the BJP.

AAP has not won the New Delhi seat till date.

This is the first time since independence that no Congress party candidate is in the fray. Congress is out of the contest here. Many Congress leaders also believe that Aam Aadmi Party has not won a New Delhi Lok Sabha seat till date whereas Congress has won 7 times in New Delhi Lok Sabha elections. However, Congress had to vacate this seat. The Congress is not in the contest here because of the seat agreement between the Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi. This is the seat where voters include Congress Parliamentary Party president Sonia Gandhi, MP Rahul Gandhi and his sister Priyanka Vadra.

Why were the Congress leaders against the alliance?

Several senior Congress and local leaders are quietly expressing their objections to the deal. In the initial phase, most of the Delhi Congress leaders were against this alliance. A major reason for this is that before the alliance between Congress and AAP, Aam Aadmi Party MLA Jarnail Singh and other members had proposed in the Delhi Assembly that the Bharat Ratna be withdrawn from Rajiv Gandhi. This proposal was not only placed in the assembly, but most of the members of the Aam Aadmi Party, including the assembly speaker, also supported this proposal.

Kejriwal has demanded Sonia’s arrest.

Not only this, Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal himself has demanded the arrest of Sonia Gandhi. In many places, relations between AAP and Congress leaders are still not cozy. Congress and AAP are still against each other in Punjab and are contesting elections separately.

Bansori Swaraj vs. Somnath Bharti

Along with this, BJP has won the New Delhi Lok Sabha seat 11 times so far. This time BJP has made former Union Minister Sushma Swaraj’s daughter Bansuri Swaraj as its candidate. Somnath is contesting from Bharati Aam Aadmi Party. Somnath is an MLA of the Bharatiya Aam Aadmi Party and has also served as a minister in the Delhi government.

BJP candidate Bansuri Swaraj graduated from Warwick University in English Literature. He studied law at BPP Law School, London and did his Masters from St Catherine’s College, Oxford University. If we talk about AAP’s Somnath Bharti, he is also a lawyer by profession. He has been the Law Minister in Delhi’s Kejriwal government. At present he is the Vice Chairman of Delhi Jal Board. Somnath Bharti did his MSc from IIT Delhi in 1997. After that he did Law from Delhi University and practiced in Delhi High Court and Supreme Court as well. (With IANS input)
