Aam Aadmi Party(AAP) on Saturday has released the names of six candidates for the coming Lok Sabha elections.
A couple of days back, AAP had made it clear that the party will not have any alliance with the Congress in Delhi. The party will field Atishi from East Delhi, Raghav Chaddha from South Delhi, Pankaj Gupta from Chandni Chowk, Dilip Pandey from North East Delhi, Gugan Singh from North West Delhi and Brajesh Goel from the New Delhi Lok Sabha seat. The six candidates were earlier appointed as in charge on the respective Lok Sabha seats.
The candidate for the seventh and the final seat, West Delhi, is still being discussed and will be announced later, senior party leader Gopal Rai said at a press conference this afternoon.
The BJP had won the seven Delhi seats in the 2014 election. Since then, however, AAP has made its presence felt with impressive wins in assembly polls. "We won 66 out of 77 seats in Assembly elections. We will try to make a similar presence felt during the Lok Sabha elections," Mr Rai said.
