Delhi election result 2020: Candidates who won by the widest margin

Amanatullah Khan, AAP (Okhla)

Amanatullah Khan, AAP (Okhla)

Amanatullah Khan, won the Delhi assembly election 2020 with a margin of 86,000 votes leaving behind BJP’s Braham Singh.

Okhla is home to Shaheen Bagh, ground zero for the protests against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC) - something that the BJP tried to capitalise to polarise voters across the city. While there were voters complaining about the seemingly endless protests causing inconvenience to everyone else going about their lives, BJP did not manage to win votes.

Instead, it was Amanatullah Khan, the candidate for AAP, a party that kept a one-hand distance from the protests— neither did it decry the protests nor did it fuel it ⁠— has won with a huge margin. However, it must also be mentioned that Khan had double the margin when he won the assembly election from the same constituency, Okhla, in 2015.
