After electing Balraj Madhok of the Jan Sangh in the first election in 1967, the constituency turned to the Congress. In 1977 it elected Vijay Malhotra, then contesting on the Lok Dal ticket, before turning to the Congress in 1980. In the next election Lalit Maken was elected from here, who defeated Malhotra now of the BJP. In 1989 and 1991 Madanlal Khurana -- later Delhi chief minister -- has been elected from here, and in 1996 it was the turn of Sushma Swaraj, who defeated legal luminary and Congress candidate Kapil Sibal by 1,14,000 votes. Cricket's stormy petrel Manoj Prabhakar was also in the fray, on the Congress-T ticket, and he actually came third, winning 3.34 % of the vote.
