AAP's Raghav Chaddha to contest Lok Sabha polls from South Delhi; no alliance with Cong

After denying the reports of making an alliance with the Congress, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Saturday announced its candidates in Delhi for the upcoming General elections, which are due by May.

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal led party has fielded 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.

Meanwhile, senior party leader Gopal Rai said that the seventh and the final seat, West Delhi, is still being discussed and will be announced later.

In 2014 Lok Sabha polls, the ruling BJP had won all seven seats in the national capital. 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.

“Sheila Dikshit has said a straight no to the alliance. Rahul Gandhi also said not possible… Aam Aadmi Party wanted the alliance, but the Congress is not ready” Gopal Rai said at a presser.

At a public meeting last week, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had said he was “tired” of trying to persuade the Congress to agree to an alliance with his AAP. A day later, Sheila Dikshit retorted, “When did AAP ever come to us? If Arvind wants an alliance, then he should directly speak to me.”
