The seat that Hamza lost was once a BJP stronghold.
The Swar assembly seat was once a BJP stronghold. Shiv Bahadur Saxena of BJP had won this seat four times. Later this seat became a strong fort of the Nawab family. It was difficult for BJP to distinguish it. Gradually, time passed and the dominance of Azam Khan’s family began to be seen in the Swar assembly seat. Azam Khan’s son Abdullah Azam had won from here in 2017.

BJP got defeat in 2012 and 2017 but still could not come back
In the 2017 assembly elections, Abdullah Azam Khan contested on a SP ticket. In that election Azam got 1,06,443 votes and defeated Laxmi Saini of BJP by 53,096 votes. In the 2012 assembly elections, Nawab Qasim Ali Khan alias Naved Mian of Congress defeated Laxmi Saini of BJP. Despite all the efforts, after the 2012 and 2017 assembly elections, BJP has not been able to win the Swar assembly seat even in 2022.
