he Mustafabad Assembly constituency came into existence in 2008 as part of delimitation exercise. The constituency is part of the North East Delhi Lok Sabha constituency. It recorded a 53.10% voter turnout in contrast to Okhla — another seat with sizeable Muslim vote — that clocked just 30.93% votes till 3:50 pm.
Over the last seven years, AAP has successfully weaned away Muslim voters, who have long been considered a traditional Congress vote bank. In 2015, when AAP had swept the Delhi elections winning 67 seats and giving away only three to BJP, Mustafabad was the only Muslim-dominated seat that was won by BJP.
For the upcoming Delhi Assembly Election 2020, the key candidates in Mustafabad constituency include Haji Yunus of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Jagdish Pradhan of the BJP and ex-MLA Hasan Ahmed’s son Ali Mehndi from Congress. Mehndi is also head of the Congress party’s minority wing
