Delhi Assembly Elections 2020: Chhatarpur Assembly Constituency: Being surrounded by posh South Delhi localities from one side and swanky farmhouses from the other, Chhatarpur Assembly constituency still craves for basic amenities like electricity supply and decongestion. Besides these, women's safety and pathetic sewerage system exacerbate things in Chhatarpur and ask for a total overhaul. It is the part of South Delhi Lok Sabha constituency which comprises other Vidhan Sabha segments like Mehrauli, Palam, Bijwasan, Kalkaji, Mehrauli, Deoli, Ambedkar Nagar, Sangam Vihar, Tughlaqabad and Badarpur. Moreover, the present geographical structure of Chhatarpur constituency came into existence in 2008 as a part of the implementation of the recommendations of the Delimitation Commission of India constituted in 2002.
