New Delhi: The political affairs committee of the AAP met here, following which the second list of candidates for the polls is likely to be released. The meeting is being held at Kejriwal’s residence.
The step is a clear indication that AAP is fast gearing up for the upcoming General Elections and fine-tuning its strategies for it. AAP leader Yogendra Yadav had made it clear last week that his party would contest the coming Lok Sabha polls under Kejriwal’s leadership.
Reports said that the party is expected to announce names of Rakhi Bidlan, Rabbi Shergill, Adarsh Shastri, Ashok Jain, Rajesh Yadav, KP Yadav, Sanjeev Singh among others for the upcoming polls.
AAP had announced the first list of candidates for Lok Sabha polls last Sunday. The list included with Ashutosh, Mukul Tripathi, Baba Hardev, Subash Ware, Anjali Damania, Soumendra Dhaka, Jarnail Singh, Dr Jiyalal Ra, Kumar Vishwas, Yogendra Yadav, Mayank Gandhi, Medha Patkhar, Meera Sanyal, Habung Payeng, Baliram Pandhare, Alok Aggarwal, Lingraj, Harvinder Singh Phoolka, Yogesh Dahiya, and Khalid Parvaiz.
Kerjriwal had resigned as Delhi CM shortly after his government was defeated on the issue of tabling of the Jan Lokpal Bill in Delhi Assembly in the face of a united resistance by outside supporter Congress and the BJP.
