Delhi Elections 2020: Close fight in Hari Nagar between AAP and BJP

Delhi Election Results 2020: Aam Aadmi Party's Rajkumari Dhillon, BJP's Tajinder Bagga and Congress Surender Sethi have been locked in a tight fight for the Hari Nagar constituency. Dhillon is the first-ever woman candidate from a major party to be fielded in the seat since 1993. Congress' Sethi is also a popular face in the constituency.

Dhillon was a ward councillor of Hari Nagar in the past and was previously a leader of the Congress party. Her ticket has been criticised by Bagga. He said that AAP's politics is in such bad shape that they had to "import" a candidate from Congress.

Dhillon is a popular candidate in the constituency who has been lauded for her work by the voters. Additionally, voters in the constituency support Kejriwal's freebies.
