Chandni Chowk, located in Old Delhi, is one of the busiest areas of the national capital. In 2015, the constituency had 1,13,777 electors, out of which 62,719 are males and 51,052 females. Parlad Singh Sawhney of AAP has won the Chandni Chowk assembly seat by 29, 584 votes.
Parlad Singh Sawhney is contesting from Aam Aadmi Party against Alka Lamba of Indian National Congress.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) won the Chandni Chowk constituency in the 2015 Assembly elections. Former AAP candidate Alka Lamba outperformed Suman Kumar Gupta of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) by a margin of over 18,287 votes. However, Alka Lamba later joined Congress. Her relationship with the AAP leadership deteriorated after she objected to the party passing a resolution in the Delhi assembly demanding that the Bharat Ratna to former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi be taken back over the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
