Former Delhi minister and veteran Congressman Haroon Yusuf will contest from his pocket borough of Ballimaran for the seventh consecutive time. He is set to take on incumbent MLA and Cabinet minister Imran Hussain.

Yusuf holds a masters degree from Zakir Hussain College and began his career as an activist in the NSUI, the student wing of the Congress. He later moved on to the Youth Congress in the 1980s. He was a secretary in the Delhi unit of the Youth Congress before becoming a joint secretary in the All India Youth Congress.

He won his seat from Ballimaran, a Muslim dominated constituency, five times in a row between 1993 and 2013. The only time he tasted defeat was in the last elections, when he lost to AAP?s Hussain by over 40,000. In fact, Yusuf came a distant third.

Given his credentials as a local strongman, Yusuf was inducted into the Sheila Dikshit Cabinet in 2001. Between 2001 and 2013, he held multiple high-profile portfolios of development, revenue, irrigation, flood control, food and civil supplies, power and transport. As the transport minister, the menace of blueline buses peaked in Delhi. These buses, which developed the reputation of killing people, were later phased out. Moreover, he was also the head of the Delhi Waqf Board between 1999 and 2004.
