New Delhi: BJP today released the first list for the Delhi Assembly elections. Out of the total 70 seats in Delhi, 57 candidates were declared. The candidates for the remaining 13 seats have been announced soon. The 13 seats where the candidates have not been announced include the New Delhi Assembly seat. This seat is special because it is from here that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal contests elections. That is, who will be the candidate for this seat from the BJP, will have to wait for it.
Aam Aadmi Party’s Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh took a dig at the BJP and called it a team without a captain. In his tweet, Sanjay Singh wrote, “The BJP team in Delhi is without a captain. Today people hoped that BJP would bring out a face against the honest leadership of Arvind Kejriwal but before the election, the BJP gave a walkover and gave up before fighting. ”
