POPULATION 2.5 TOTAL West Delhi Lok Sabha constituency is one of the seven Lok Sabha constituencies in the National Capital Territory of Delhi .This constituency came into existence in 2008 as a part of the implementation of the recommendations of the Delimitation Commission of India constituted in 2002. West Delhi Lok Sabha constituency presently comprises the following ten constituencies, namely Rajouri Garden, Madipur, Hari Nagar, Tilak Nagar, Janakpuri, Vikaspuri , Uttam Nagar, Dwarka, Matiala and Najafgarh. Kishan Ahuja, a resident of Janakpuri says: “West Delhi has the worst possi- ble power outages in summer. Needless to say this disrupts normal life and even leads to water shortage. There have been several incidents of power thefts whereby anti-social elements from unauthorised colonies and jhuggis have diverted power lines from the poles to suit their interests. The new government will have to address this issue on priority.” Clean drinking water supply is an issue in these parts, especially inthe unauthorised colonies, says Neeraj Gupta, a senior officer working in the electricity board.
