Janakpuri is even not a VIP area in Delhi. But if you remember Prof. Jagdish Mukhi era, It had become the most watchedout zone for Delhi voters. Prof. Jagdish Mukhi served Janakpuri area for more then 40 Years. During his tenure the Janakpuri was basically strong hold for BJP. Senior BJP leader Jagdish Mukhi continued his winning streak for the fifth term in a row in the 2013 Assembly elections. After loosing in 2015 he left his area and promoted as Governor in Andaman Nicobar. in 2017 it will be first time even in 40 years BJP is contesting without him. BJP looks nervous this time as the absense of Jahdish Mukhi is not only a concern but absense of their stalwart Mr. Ashish Sood is also a matter of concern for BJP. BJP dropped Mr. Ashish Sood due to their policy of NO Previous Candidate.
Presense of AAP and Congress is making the contest interesting. It will be watchable to see who wins. If BJP looses it will proove the suprimacy of Jagdish Mukhi. Meanwhile the area is full of Hindu Punjabi voters are always a traditional BJP voters.
