Results in the last four elections: Karan Singh Dalal bagged the first position in 2000 on a Republican Party of India (RPI) ticket by defeating INLD's Devender Chauhan with 37,539 votes. In the next election, Dalal again emerged the winner, but this time as a Congress candidate. The 2009 Assembly election, however, didn't bring him much luck as he lost to INLD's Subhash Choudhary, albeit by a small margin of 6,672 votes.
In 2014, Dalal bounced back again in the fray with 57,423 votes by gaining over BJP's Deepak Mangla. Although the Narendra Modi-led BJP government made a sweeping victory in 2014, the saffron party wasn't able to make inroads in any of the seats of Palwal district.
