East Delhi witnesses a stiff fight in 2019 Lok Sabha elections as the BJP has fielded Gautham Gambhir, the famous cricketer against AAP’s Atishi and Congress’ Arvinder Singh Lovely.

Gautam Gambhir, the cricketer turned as a politician is trying his luck in East Delhi, which is the least developed region of the capital of India. At present, the sitting MP from this constituency is Maheish Girri of the BJP.

Gautam Gambhir joined the BJP only recently in March 2019. He has been used by the BJP as a star campaigner and to speak for the party on News channels. Gautham Gambhir is new to politics and this is his first election. Since he is a Punjabi Arora by caste, he can get the BJP the support of his caste in the East Delhi seat. Also his appeal among the youth and women is an added advantage for the BJP.


Atishi is one of the prospective candidates for the AAP since she is said to have accomplished a phenomenal work in the capital to promote public education. She came to headlines when the Union Home ministry sacked her from her position as an advisor to the Delhi Deputy Chief Minister after Atishi establishing her name over the three years of her tenure.
