Results in the last four elections: Once a stronghold of Congress, Bawal is a big setback for the grand old party which has been unable to regain footing in the last five elections. From 2005 to 2014, when Congress was in power in the state under the leadership of BS Hooda, the people of Bawal chose an Independent candidate and INLD candidate respectively. In 2005, Shakuntla Bhagwaria won the election with a margin of 3,121 votes and in 2009, Rameshwar Dayal defeated Congress' Shakuntla Bhagwaria by a massive margin of over 22,000 votes. However, in 2014 the BJP stole the show when its candidate Dr Banwari Lal bagged the election with a thumping victory by garnering 72,792 votes.
Sampat Ram Dahanwal from INLD, Machinder Singh from the Bahujan Samaj Party, ML Ranga from Congress and Banwari Lal from the BJP are trying their luck in the constituency in 2019 among others.
