But in the next elections in 2014, Singh lost to BJP’s Ghanshyam Das who won with over 20,000 votes.
Dilbag Singh from INLD, Yogesh Kumar from Bahujan Samaj Party, Nirmal Chauhan from Congress and Ghanshyam Das from the BJP are trying their luck in the constituency in 2019 among others.
Demographics: As the region where the Yamuna enters plains from the hills, Yamunanagar is located at the base of Shivalik hills and surrounded by rivers, forest cover and streams. Quickly emerging as an important industrial area, it is the second-highest revenue generator of Haryana after Faridabad. Because Yamunanagar is a steadily developing constituency, voters might favour those whose promises of industry development appeal to them to most.
