Election results 2024: Actor-turned-politician Raj Babbar, who contested from Gurgaon on a Congress ticket, exuded confidence as early trends show him leading from the seat.

“Counting is going very well. The public’s decision will come by the evening. The people of Gurgaon constituency are moving forward,” he told a news agency.

In an interview with Patriot prior to polling, Babbar had said that Gurgaon is grappling with multiple problems that require immediate attention for the convenience of residents.

“There are numerous issues that demand proper redressal here. Whether it is work of colleges, universities, roads and railways, everything is stalled. Moreover, the place also lacks civic facilities like sewage and waste management,” Babbar had told Patriot on the sidelines of his campaign.

He highlighted that absence of schools in some areas has impacted the education of children.

“Children, especially girls are facing difficulties due to non-availability of schools in Mewat and Rewari. There is a scarcity of safe drinking water. Industries have caused a lot of pollution affecting the health of locals and deteriorating agricultural land. It is a crucial need to elect a representative who can hold authorities accountable,” emphasised Babbar.

The 71-year-old politician who has been into politics for the last 35 years credits his fans and voters for helping him sustain in this field all these years.

Known for portraying villainous characters in the films, he said, “But I have never seen my roles as villainous as I believe in doing good roles. There is nothing like positive and negative roles. Whatever I get to do, I ensure I do justice to it.”

Babbar has played key roles in films like GhayalHaqeeqatAitbaarAankhenDalaalLoC KargilSheen among others.
