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

Trilokpuri assembly constituency is a resettlement colony established in 1975-76 and the people of the nearby slums are relocated here. Since 1993, it has been ruled by MLAs from Congress (1993, 1998, and 2003), BJP (2008), and AAP (2013 and 2015). That’s why it can’t be regarded as a safe seat for any political party.

In the 2015 Delhi Assembly election, Raju Dhingan was fielded against BJP’s Kiran Vaidya from Trilokpuri constituency and the former defeated the later by around 30,000 votes. However, in the 2020 assembly poll, AAP has changed its candidate and given the ticket to Rohit Kumar Mehraulia. The other major candidates of the Trilokpuri assembly constituency in the 2020 Vidhan Sabha Election are Kiran Vaidya of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Vijay Kumar of Indian National Congress (INC).

  • There are 4 major political parties in this constituency and they are Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Indian National Congress (INC), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), and Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD). While INC has won thrice (1993, 1998, and 2003), BJP once (2008), and AAP twice (2013 and 2015) from this constituency. However, BSP and SAD haven’t won from this assembly seat.

  • Ground reports indicate that the AAP has high chances of winning this Vidhan Sabha constituency again. AAP has tied up with the Indian Political Action Committee of Prashant Kishor, giving AAP a well-deserved momentum to its campaign.

  • With the BJP powering its campaign by focusing on the issues of CAA and regularizing 1,731 unauthorized colonies in Delhi, they are expected to give a tough fight to AAP in the 2020 Delhi Assembly election.

  • Congress is struggling to survive in this constituency and will hardly put any challenge to AAP and BJP.

  • Communal tensions are witnessed in this constituency on a regular basis since 1984.

    • It all started with the deaths of 350 Sikhs in Trilokpuri neighborhood in 1984 during the infamous anti-Sikh riots.

    • In recent years, the most significant communal tension took place in 2014 between the Hindu and Muslim communities in this constituency. The clash between the communities started after a group of people started building a temple near a mosque in Trilokpuri. The administration had imposed a month-and-a-half long curfew in the area.

    • Even in May last year, large scale police personnel had to be deployed as a precautionary measure to stop any riot when two cows were found dead under mysterious circumstances.

  • Recently, the residents in the stretch between Trilokpuri and Mayur Vihar Pocket-I on the Delhi Metro Pink Line objected to a Delhi Metro notice that wanted to relocate the residents from 108 plots of lands. However, Delhi High Court later said in response to a petition by residents that people can’t be uprooted for executing “projects for the public good”.

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

  • The residents in the constituency are more or less content about the water supply. However, complaints regarding the supply of contaminated water are there. This issue would have a positive as well as a negative effect on AAP. However, there is a sense in the assembly seat that the AAP at least is trying to work for the people.

  • A significant improvement has been witnessed by the residents in the three public schools in the Trilokpuri assembly constituency. This will surely give a dividend to AAP in the 2020 Vidhan Sabha election.

  • The CAA, the protests in Shaheen Bagh, and the narrative created around them have become an issue in this assembly election, especially for a constituency which has a significant Muslim population. However, the local issues dominate the minds of the residents in this assembly seat.

  • General sentiment in the constituency is that the local needs have improved during the AAP regime, especially in the last 5-years. The electorates now want the next MLA to upgrade the existing system.
