The AAP on Saturday declared its fourth list of candidates for the upcoming Delhi Assembly elections. While six candidates feature on the list, the AAP is yet to officially declare details of party chief Arvind Kejriwal.
Fifty-one candidates, which also includes its six Delhi ministers, feature in the three lists declared by the party earlier.
Adding to the list of Lok Sabha candidates being fielded, the fourth list has names of Devinder Sehrawat and Jarnail Singh. Earlier, the party had announced that Rakhi Birla and Adarsh Shastri would contest the polls. All four candidates had contested the Lok Sabha polls.
While Sehrawat will be contesting from Bijwasan, Singh will fight the elections from Rajouri Garden constituency.
Singh has been associated with the AAP prior to the Lok Sabha polls this year. He had contested the general elections from the West Delhi constituency.
Sehrawat was the AAP’s Delhi Assembly polls candidate from Bijwasan last year. Sehrawat lost the seat by a margin of 2,414 votes to BJP’s Sat Prakash Rana. He also contested the Lok Sabha polls from the South Delhi constituency.
Other names on the list include former Congress member Alka Lamba, who has been fielded from Chandni Chowk, and former AAP MLAs Akhilesh Tripathi and Mahendra Yadav from Model Town and Vikaspuri respectively.
Another new name to feature on the list is Haji Ishraq (Bhure Bhai), a social worker from Seelampur constituency.
