The Aam Aadmi Party has announced the names of its candidates for six of the seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi. The announcement was made by Delhi AAP convenor Gopal Rai, who also said that the party will not be entering into an alliance with the Congress.

While Atishi Marlena has been nominated to contest from East Delhi, Guggan Singh will contest from Northwest Delhi. AAP political affairs committee member Raghav Chadha will contest from South Delhi, while Pankaj Gupta has been nominated to contest from the Chandni Chowk seat. Dilip Pandey and Brijesh Goyal will contest from Northeast Delhi and New Delhi seats respectively. Although, AAP has not yet decided who will contest from the West Delhi seat.

The BJP had won the seven Delhi seats in the 2014 election. Since then, 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.

Clearing the air regarding the possibility of a tie up with the Congress, Gopal Rai said that the AAP had received two communications from the Congress. “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.
