Brought in to replace sitting BJP MP Udit Raj from North-West Delhi, Hans Raj Hans, popular Punjabi and Soofi singer, is up against Congress' Rajesh Lilothia and AAP's Gugan Singh. Both Lilothia and Singh are former Legislators, but Hans is not a newcomer to politics either. His political career began with Shiromani Akalli Dal in 2019 and he also had a short stint with the Congress in 2016.
BJP MP Udit Raj threw a tantrum and resigned from the saffron party after BJP announced Hans' candidature from the seat. Both Congress and Delhi would be hoping to attract minority and Dalit votes in the constituency. A split of votes, however, could end up handing the advantage to Hans. His star power might also help him inch ahead of the other candidates.
