Union minister and incumbent Chandni Chowk MP Harsh Vardhan is up for reelection form the high profile seat. He faces challenge from a Congress' Jai Prakash Agarwal, a four-time MP, and AAP's Pankaj Gupta.
With a long stint as an MLA from Krishna Nagar assembly seat, Vardhan is a veteran of Delhi politics. He is banking on his experience and his work as a cabinet minister in Delhi.
But he poses a strong challenge from Agarwal, who has served as an MP from Chandni Chowk in the past and is hoping to cash in on trader anger against the BJP government at the centre.
