Chandni Chowk General Election 2014 Results Analysis

2014 polls in India have been different. These General elections witnessed a fiercer competition than ever among the top leaders of the nation. However, what many people couldn't predict was that the 'Modi' wave would emerge even bigger than imagined.

Many high profile seats in the country which were Congress' bastion for many years saw a change this year just like the Chandni Chowk Lok sabha seat in Delhi where the BJP's candidate Dr. Harsh Vardhan wiped out the Congress' twice winner Kapil Sibal completely off the record this time.

The fight: Kapil Sibal v/s Harsh vardhan

BJP and NaMo very strategically and aptly placed stronger candidates in the areas of Congress' bastion where they wanted the 'Modi' wand to work in favor. This is why BJP analytically positioned their chief ministerial candidate Mr. Harsh Vardhan to compete against the Union minister and also the sitting MP, Mr. Kapil Sibal.

Among this fierce competition was another candidate, the Aam Aadmi Party's Managing editor-turned politician Mr. Ashutosh who, though, was naive in this arena but substituted his ineptness with the display of his exuberance during campaigning.

However, what even Sibal and Ashutosh couldn't assess was that that the brand NaMo is way bigger than his stronghold and his exuberance respectively.

In the previous 2009 General Elections Congress had won all the seven seats from the state including Chandni Chowk where Sibal won with the margin of more than two lacs votes. Also, the fact that even though Sibal ruled in the constituency for the past ten years the residents of the area chose Vardhan over him just highlights the intensity with which voters wanted an anti-incumbent to win in the area and work for their civic issues with an altogether new approach.

The journey: Rise of an invincible opponent

The BJP Delhi President owes his unprecedented win from the constituency to NaMo to a certain extent, if not completely. In the 2013 Delhi Assembly elections Mr. Vardhan completely denied the Lt. Governor' offer for forming a joint government in Delhi which now seemed to have worked in his favor. The AAP government which was later formed with the support of Congress fell flat when it came to the apt governance of the state.

The residents of the constituency who had ever since been truly loyal to the Indian National Congress, this time, were aware of the performances of Congress as well as AAP, hence when the door-to-door extensive campaigning by the BJP candidate started for unmasking the alleged corruption of INC and the alleged nihilism by the AAP, the voters decided to support his cause altogether.

The win: Pleasant Surprise and the Majority that helped

Selecting Dr Harsh Vardhan as BJP's chief ministerial candidate from Delhi and then putting him up against as strong a contender as Sibal in Chandni Chowk was indeed a masterstroke by the Bhartiya Janta Party. The party's assessment of him has now proved to be more than fruitful. Mr. Harsh Vardhan also known as the head of the Pulse Polio Programme, also an ENT doctor, had essentially promised to bring in all the required radical reforms in the area along with a clean and transparent government and he had campaigned likewise for the agenda. Also, all of these promises coming in from someone who was the driving force in the eradication of a disease like polio from the country also promised a new ray of hope for the residents of the constituency.
The former health minister Dr. Vardhan, during the course of campaigning, many a times highlighted various problems of the constituency and the state like price-rise of essentials, increasing pollution, rising crime, unstable power tariffs, poor infrastructure and scams.

The Muslim population in the vicinity is estimated to be about 20% of the total residents and many along with the contesting candidates were expecting that this population will be in favor of 'not BJP'. However, unexpectedly it came into light that many in the constituency irrespective of their castes, creed or color voted for Mr. Vardhan and the 'Modi' brand.

Another factor which helped Vardhan win was that this time BJP worked unitedly and emerged stronger and bigger than ever not only on the state front but also on the national front, thereby making people aware of their agendas. Harsh Vardhan's low profile in the political circuit along with a clean image also seemed to have worked for him and the Nationalist party.

An important truth which was out of everyone's mind here was that be it the Muslims or the Hindus or any others caste members are all the 'common man' of India and these elections saw the masses and the classes come together and opt for the 'NaMo sarkar'.
