The Aam Aadmi Party, days after declaring that there will be no grand alliance or “mahagathbandhan” with the Congress in Delhi for the Lok Sabha elections, today announced its candidates 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 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.
“Sheila Dikshit has said a straight no to alliance. Rahul Gandhi also said not possible… Aam Aadmi Party wanted the alliance, but the Congress is not ready” Gopal Rai said.
