Sitting MLAs Saurabh Bhardwaj, Rakhi Birla, Jarnail Singh, Somnath Bharti, Sanjeev Jha, and Amantullah Khan are also set to lead the battle; while election candidates like Durgesh Pathak (from Karawal Nagar), Shoaib Iqbal (Matia Mahal), Atishi (Kalkaji), Raghav Chadha (Rajinder Nagar) and Dilip Pandey (Timarpur) also figure in the list.
Stakes are high for the AAP after it secured an enormous victory the last time winning in 67 out of 70 constituencies, while the BJP managed only three. In the upcoming elections, the AAP aims to achieve an even higher target, as the BJP and Congress is strategising to woo the voters in their favour.
