Vipin Sharma, son of former Delhi Congress Chief and MLA lateRam Babu Sharma, has good prospects of re-election provided he can guard against consolidation of anti-Sheila Dikshit voters. 

The BJP will be unable to wrest Rohtas Nagar unless it can wean away a majority of anti-Delhi Government voters and at the same time not allow Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to eat into antiestablishment electorate. Former MCD Deputy Mayor Divya Jaiswal, runner up in 2009, is one of the contenders for the party ticket.
