Due to large the Sikh population, Tilak Nagar is considered a hostile seat for the Congress

Tilak Nagar Assembly Elections 2020 | Jarnail Singh, AAP candidate and incumbent MLA from Tilak Nagar Assembly constituency defeated his closest rival, BJP's Rajiv Babbar by 28,029 votes. While Singh has a vote share of 62.2 percent, Babbar has 34.28 percent of the votes polled.
The Tilak Nagar Vidhan Sabha constituency, which is part of the West Delhi Lok Sabha constituency, has for long been a BJP bastion before the AAP breached the fortress in the 2015 polls. Due to large the Sikh population, Tilak Nagar is considered a hostile seat for the Congress.
Hence, the fight for the seat was expected to be largely between the AAP and BJP. The AAP re-nominated the incumbent MLA who is also a local, Jarnail Singh, for a third term, while Rajeev Babar, son of local strongman OP Babbar, contested on a BJP ticket. The constituency, which has the best gender ratio among voters across Delhi, went to the polls on 8 February.

Results in previous elections: Singh is the incumbent MLA. Between 1993 and 2013, OP was the BJP representative of the constituency, except for the period between 1998 and 2003 when Jaspal Singh of the Congress represented the seat.
Demographics: Like other areas in the West Delhi Lok Sabha constituency, Tilak Nagar has a significant population of Sikhs. Most of these Sikhs, as well as Punjabi Hindus, migrated from Pakistan in the aftermath of the Partition.
The BJP’s long game is indeed effective and perhaps a crucial way for it to stay in power and make permanent difference. But while the party behaves like a political party, it is important that the government does governance
Under the Narendra Modi dispensation, performance and merit are fast replacing sycophancy and surname politics
BJP state in-charge Arun Singh also asked Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot to not indulge in 'appeasement politics'
