Key Facts of Sadar Bazar Assembly Constituency and its Top Candidates for Delhi Assembly Election:

Sadar Bazar assembly constituency is going to witness a triangular contest among three major political parties: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and Indian National Congress (INC). Sadar Bazar Vidhan Sabha was a Congress stronghold from 1998 to 2008 assembly elections. However, the scenario changed with the rise of AAP, which has been winning this seat since 2013.

The incumbent AAP MLA Som Dutt won the last election against BJP’s Parveen Kumar Jain by over 30,000 votes. INC’s senior leader Ajay Maken came third. AAP has reposed its faith in Som Dutt and gave him a nomination from Sadar Bazar Vidhan Sabha constituency yet again. If Som Dutt wins this election, it will be a hat-trick for him.

The major candidates of the Sadar Bazar assembly constituency in the 2020 Vidhan Sabha Election are sitting MLA Som Dutt of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Jai Prakash of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and Satbir Sharma of Indian National Congress (INC).

Main Issues/Factors in 2020 Delhi Assembly Election‘s Sadar Bazar Constituency

Sadar Bazar assembly constituency’s main issues/factors in 2020 Vidhan Sabha election are:

  • All three candidates are the local residents and every one of them are public figures who have been elected in different positions.

    • AAP’s Som Dutt is the sitting MLA. He won this seat twice (2013 and 2015).

    • BJP’s Jai Prakash is the Sadar Bazar municipal ward’s sitting councilor. Praveen is also the chairman of North Delhi Municipal Corporation’s standing committee.

  • There is widespread dissatisfaction among the residents of Hindu-trader dominated Pahari Dhiraj area in the constituency. They complain about the absence of a mohalla clinic, lack of parking space, broken roads, congestion, law & order problems (especially the problem of pickpocketing), and haphazardly draped overhead wires over buildings. Traffic snarls and encroachment are the two major problems facing the area.

  • A section of people in the constituency feels that AAP’s Som Dutt hasn’t done enough work for the constituency. However, he might win the election because of the Kejriwal-wave.

  • The BJP candidate has good relations with the people in the constituency, especially the trading class, and it may give him enough momentum to give a tough fight to AAP’s two-term MLA from the constituency.

  • Many locals in the constituency compare the works done by AAP’s Som Dutt with that of the works done by Imran Hussain in Ballimaran constituency, which is very close to Sadar Bazar constituency.

  • The interior parts of the constituency still suffer from water supply and electricity problems.
