Meerut Cantt. is part of Meerut district and one of the five assembly constituencies in the Meerut Lok Sabha constituency.

The trading community dominates the constituency but have mixed views on demonetisation despite heavy loss of business in recent months.

MLA: Satya Prakash Agrawal (BJP)
Key rivals: Ramesh Dhingra (Congress), Satendra Solanki (BSP)
Traffic jams and sanitation are a big issue. I promise to solve these issues if I am re-elected. During my term, I have helped to bring new police chowkies, overbridge and the construction of a new medical college.
MLA has tried his best to resolve the issues but due to lack of co-operation from the state government, a lot of projects were left pending.
