Election Insights

bjp won 2019 elections with 61% vote share, followed by congress at 34.4%. bjp is the front-runner in haryana and the Gurugram LS seat.

Three-time mp Rao Inderjit Singh is the BJP’s candidate. In 2009, he became an mp from the Congress. However, 2014 onwards, Singh has been an mp from the BJP. After 10 years in Parliament, some amount of incumbency is expected against him. But a weakened opposition gives the bjp an edge.

Rao Inderjit Singh has dominated politics in south haryana for three decades, and commands significant influence among the numerically dominant Ahirs in the constituency.

Rao Inderjit Singh is known as a straight-talking person and has often not hesitated to speak openly even to the cm on public platforms. He is credited with efforts to bring AIIMS, Defence University, Dwarka Expressway, Commerce college etc in South Haryana.

ajay Singh of the congress was pipped to be the favourite to take on Rao Inderjit in Gurugram, but the party has instead fielded actor-politician raj Babbar. ‘Kaptaan’ ajay Singh Yadav’s father had defeated Rao Inderjit’s father Rao Birendra Singh in 1952.

Under the Khattar government, bjp is viewed favourably for its pro-development policies and initiatives. Gurugram’s urban electorate is strongly with the party.

Focus on infrastructure projects, urban rejuvenation, and industrial growth has been a key push for the BJP. For example, the Dwarka Expressway, metro connectivity expansion, and improved road networks.

Gurugram is a corporate hub with a significant presence of industries, businesses, and multinational companies. The BJP’s emphasis on economic reforms, ease of doing business, and investment-friendly policies align with the interests of the corporate sector.
