Gwalior is one of the 29 Lok Sabha constituencies of Madhya Pradesh.
After the Delimitation Commission of India’s Order was imposed in 2008, the constituency of Gwalior is made up of eight assembly segments that are spread over the districts of Gwalior and Shivpuri.
It was represented by BJP’s Narendra Singh Tomar who won the 2014 Lok Sabha elections by defeating Congress’s Ashok Singh by a margin of 29,699 votes.
This time around, the Congress was hoping to turn the tables considering the previous election’s margin of less than 30,000 votes. Towards this end, it had once again fielded Ashok Singh against BJP’s Vivek Sejwalkar, instead of Narendra Singh Tomar who was moved to nearby Morena.
