Polling for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections in Delhi will be on Saturday (May 25). The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won all the seven seats in the national capital in the previous elections in 2014 and 2019. The party is eyeing a third clean sweep in a row.
The polling for 2024 Lok Sabha elections are about to start on Saturday in Delhi.
On Frideay, the party’s state president Virendra Sachdeva and all seven candidates shared their experiences of the electoral campaign, saying they were confident of a clean sweep in the national capital for the third consecutive time during a press conference at the BJP's Delhi unit office.

“The party’s campaign began since the first list of five candidates came out, so it can be said that this time the electoral campaign was for around 83 days," Sachdeva underscored.

Since, it was a long campaign, all the candidates got ample time to meet the people of Delhi to understand their issues and make them aware about the work done by our government, he told.
The BJP Delhi chief expressed confidence that the extensive outreach by the candidates, support from the central leadership of the party and work done by the government will translate into a massive victory for the party in the national capital. However, he has concerns that the opposition might attempt to hamper the polling using cheap tactics like cutting electricity and water supplies. Sachdeva urged people to come out in large number to vote for the development of the country.
According to Sachdeva, the party had announced the names of five candidates on March 2. Notably, the saffron party had dropped six sitting parliamentarians while retaining Manoj Tiwari, candidate from North West Delhi. Tiwari emphasized Prime Minister Narendra Modi's contribution to the national capital and the immense trust in him.

“Despite party not being in power in Delhi, the Prime Minister has done a lot of work for the people of national capital," Tiwari noted. "The development work taken up by him across the city has instilled a trust in the people and this trust will translate in terms of vote for the party.”

Echoing the views of Tiwari, party’s candidate from South Delhi Ramvir Singh Bidhuri believes that people in his constituency want Modi make it a hat-trick.
“Development work in Delhi has been immense like two world-class convention centres in the national capital, new police headquarters, redevelopment of Kartavya Path near India Gate,” Bidhuri highlighted the work done by the federal state.
Sharing her experience about election campaign, daughter of former External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and party’s candidate from New Delhi Bansuri Swaraj said that she was really overwhelmed by the love given by the people of Delhi.
The other candidates, Harsh Malhotra from East Delhi, Kamaljeet Sehrawat from West Delhi, Praveen Khandelwal from Chandni Chowk and Yogendra Chandolia from North West Delhi also expressed similar views and also thanked the party’s central leadership for their support.
