General Elections 2004

  • Ramsevak Singh (Congress) : 307,735
  • Jaibhan Singh Pawaiya (BJP) : 210,063
    • Ram Sevak Singh was caught taking bribe and expelled from Lok Sabha. [2] This necessitated by-election for the seat which BJP won.

General Elections 1984

  • Madhavrao Scindia (Congress) : 307,735
  • Atal Bihari Vajpayee (BJP) : 132,141

Political sources claim that Scindia had told Vajpayee that he would be contesting from Guna, but changed his seat very late. The sympathy wave for Congress was so strong that Vajpayee could have lost the election in any case, but Scindia's candidacy made his defeat certain. Jana Sangh / BJP had won this seat even in the Indira waves of 1971 and 1980.[3]

General Elections 1971

  • Atal Bihari Vajpayee (BJP) : 188,995
  • Gautam Sharma (Congress) : 118,685

The by-election for Gwalior seat was won by N B Khare, also of Hindu Maha Sabha. In 1930s, Khare had been Chief Minister (called 'Premier' in those days) of Central Province as a Congress politician. But he left the party later.
