1. Alka Lamba


This 39-year-old AAP leader replaced the party's 2013 Chandni Chowk candidate, Vikram Badhwar. Lamba, who's been a Congress loyalist for the past 20 years, serving as the party's Delhi general secretary as well as national secretary, joined AAP in December 2013. Lamba beat the incumbent candidate Parlad Singh Sawhney, as well as BJP's Suman Kumar Gupta, to win this key central Delhi seat.


MLA- Chandni Chowk


2. Rakhi Birla


This 27-year-old AAP leader became the youngest cabinet minister in Delhi when she beat Congress stalwart Raj Kumar Chauhan from the Mangol Puri constituency in north west Delhi in 2013. She defeated Chauhan again on Tuesday in a landslide margin of 22,699 votes.


MLA- Mangolpuri


3. Bhavna Gaur


Gaur beat BJP incumbent Dharam Dev Solanki, who has held the Palam seat for more than 10 years, with a staggering margin. The 42-year-old won more than 30,000 votes against the old BJP hand, despite losing to him in 2013 with a margin of 6.5 percent.


MLA- Palam



4. Sarita Singh


She defeated incumbent Jitender Mahajan from BJP, winning by 7,874 votes. The 28-year-old replaced AAP candidate Mukesh Hooda, who had lost in 2013 by a wide margin.
