Results in the last four elections: In 2000, BJP's Chander Bhatia had gained over Congress' AC Chaudhury with a margin of over 18,000 votes. But the next year, Chaudhury made a comeback, defeating Bhatia with a thumping majority of 84,788 votes. Congress retained the seat in 2009 by fielding Anand Kaushik, who received 33,744 votes. In 2014 election, the BJP emerged victorious in this urban-dominated seat by pitting Vipul Goel, who won over Anand Kaushik of the Congress with 72,679 votes.
This year, the saffron party's campaigning has revolved around development issues like the two new peripheral expressways that go around Delhi through Faridabad and Gurgaon, 24-hour electricity and promise to bring more investment in the seat.
But, Congress and Jannayak Janta Party (JJP) have made unemployment a crucial issue, posing a challenge on at least three seats in Faridabad – Faridabad NIT, Hathin and Hodal – with its candidates laying claim to the vote base of INLD which had won the 2014 polls in Hathin and Faridabad NIT seats.
Mahesh Chand Jain from the Bahujan Samaj Party, Lakhan Kumar Singla from Congress and Narendra Gupta from the BJP are trying their luck in the constituency in 2019 among others.
