Among these constituencies, the Rohini seat is one of the new constituencies that came into existence in 2008. The Rohini Assembly seat is a part of the North West Delhi Lok Sabha seat, which include Narela, Rithala, Mundka, Mangolpuri, Kirari, Bawana, Nangloi Jat, Badli and Sultanpur Majra.

Rohini has traditionally been a stronghold of the BJP. A tad smaller constituency in terms of size, the majority of the Rohini consists of middle-class and upper middle-class voters. The voters have traditionally backed the BJP. Senior AAP’s Rajesh Nama Bansiwala and Sumesh Gupta  from Congress are pitted against BJP’s Vijender Gupta.

Rohini Assembly Constituency: Key Issues

The economic slowdown will cast a shadow on the Rohini results. The upper-middle class is particularly looking at issues of job creation and local infrastructural facilities. It would be interesting to see how AAP will try to woo the voters of a seat, which has a track record of favouring the BJP candidate.
