NEW DELHI: Delhi, a key electoral battleground, will witness polling in the sixth phase on May 25. The contest in the capital city is primarily between the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Congress, who have joined forces under a strategic alliance against the formidable BJP. The AAP is contesting four seats while the Congress is vying for three.

South Delhi will see Ramvir Singh Bidhuri representing the BJP and Sahi Ram Pehelwan from the AAP. Lastly, East Delhi will witness Harsh Malhotra from the BJP pitted against Kuldeep Kumar from the AAP.

Overall, a total of 889 candidates will vie for 57 Lok Sabha seats across eight states and Union Territories in the sixth phase, including all seven seats in Delhi and ten in Haryana. With the fate of these constituencies hanging in the balance, all eyes are on the electoral outcome come May 25.
