AAP on Saturday released their sixth list of candidates for 55 Lok Sabha seats.

Tribal activist Soni Sori will contest from the Bastar constituency and party leader Shazia Ilmi from Ghaziabad. 36-year-old Soni Sori was a victim of brutal torture by Chhattisgarh police for her alleged link with Maoists and receiving protection money from Essar Group in Chhattisgarh on behalf of Maoists. She was granted bail by the Supreme court only last month.

Ms. Ilmi, on the other hand, will contest from Ghaziabad although the Aam Aadmi party initially wanted her contest from Rae Bareli to take on Congress president Sonia Gandhi. Eventually, she declined. She expressed her unhappiness because she wasn’t considered for the New Delhi seat, following which she was given the Ghaziabad constituency.
