A reserved seat for the Scheduled Castes, Deoli is known to face severe water supply issues. In fact, after the 2019 poll debacle, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and a team had visited the constituency and assured people of action on the issue.

This year, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had renominated Prakash Jarwal - a key accused in the 2018 assault against the Delhi chief secretary - for the seat.

The constituency will vote on 8 February along with 69 other constituencies in the single-phase Delhi Assembly polls. Counting of votes will be conducted on 11 February.
