BJP’s Ravinder Singh Negi has conceded lead to Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia in Patparganj constituency of east Delhi late on Tuesday afternoon after having led for the most of the counting day. Sisodia is now leading by over 3,00 votes after the 13th round of counting.

Negi was at the front in the close race till 11 rounds and till Sisodia turned the tables in the 13th round.

Negi, who has polled over 53,000 votes so far, is now slightly behind Sisodia who has over 54,000 votes after the completion of 13 rounds of counting.

A loss for Sisodia would have resulted in the biggest setback of the elections. Sisodia is not only widely credited for piloting the transformation of public schools under the Delhi government, he is also the second most powerful man in Arvind Kejriwal’s administration.

Laxman Rawat of the Congress was nowhere close to the top two candidates with about 2000 votes polled in his favour.

43-year old Negi, who has given Sisodia a scare, is a businessman by profession and his wife is a contractor. His registered home is in Vinod Nagar of east Delhi. Negi’s declared assets are worth Rs 2 crore as per his election affidavit submitted to the election commission.
