AAP Announces Lok Sabha Election Candidates for Delhi, Haryana

Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party has declared its candidates for Delhi and Haryana, only days after reaching a seat-sharing arrangement with Congress. The Grand Old Party, which is running for three seats in the national capital, appears to be focused on Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra.

The AAP, which is 11 years old and has been granted national party recognition, will run in 29 constituencies across five states/union territories. In addition to Delhi and Punjab, the party will run in Gujarat, Haryana, Chandigarh, and Goa as part of an alliance with the Congress.

The AAP’s Delhi candidates will be senior leader Somnath Bharti (New Delhi), Sahiram Pehalwan (South Delhi), Mahabal Mishra (West Delhi), and Kuldeep Kumar (East Delhi). A candidate for Haryana’s Kurukshetra will be Sushil Gupta.

Senior AAP leader Sandeep Pathak said, “We will fight in five states and total 29 candidates will contest.

“These candidates have selected after so many meetings and calculations. We have to win each and every seat,” said senior party leader Gopal Rai.

“The biggest criteria to select a candidate for AAP is winnability… BJP MP doesn’t work doesn’t live among public but AAP MP works and is available day and night for public,” he went on to say.

Mr Rai further stated that the party made a “historic decision” by nominating a Schedule Caste candidate in the East Delhi constituency, which is a general seat. “Kuldeep Kumar comes from a Scheduled Caste category, and this would be the first time in Delhi that a reserve category candidate will be fighting from a general seat,” he told reporters.

Mr Kumar has been selected with a motive to end caste-based politics, added Aatishi. “AAP only sees who work for public and live with public. Only because of his work and public service we have given him ticket,” she added.
