Bagga contested Krishna Nagar (Assembly constituency) in 2015 Delhi Legislative Assembly elections from the AAP against Kiran Bedi, the chief ministerial candidate of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). He raised the issue of a simplified Value-added tax (VAT) as well as other issues of traders. He got 65,919 votes and defeated his nearest rival Bedi by a margin of 2,277 votes.
Krishna Nagar was held by Dr. Harsh Vardhan of the BJP (since 1993), who vacated the seat when he was elected to the Indian Parliament in the 2014 Indian general elections. It was considered a bastion of the BJP and a “safe” seat for BJP, which banked on Harsh Vardhan’s work in the assembly. Bagga’s win was considered a “shocking” upset and earned him sobriquets like “man of the match”, “giant killer” and “show stealer”. The previously little-known Bagga rose to instant fame, after his victory. Bagga said that his victory was due to his work in the area, while Bedi, who does not reside in the area, was an “outsider”.
