Key Facts of Tilak Nagar Assembly Constituency and its Top Candidates for Delhi Assembly Election:

Tilak Nagar assembly constituency has always seen a close contest between the Congress and BJP. However, the scenario changed in 2013 when Aam Aadmi Party’s Jarnail Singh won the election by defeating BJP’s Rajiv Babber. Since then Jarnail Singh has won this seat twice and is trying to win again from this constituency.

BJP has always been strong in this constituency since 1993. In fact, the West Delhi Lok Sabha constituency is won by the BJP (Pravesh Sahib Singh Verma). It needs to be seen whether the twice elected AAP candidate Jarnail Singh becomes third time lucky in winning the seat.
