In the assembly elections, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will once again contest from New Delhi constituency.

New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party has released its candidate list for all 70 constituencies in Delhi for the upcoming assembly elections to be held on February 8. The party has rejigged its roster, dropping several sitting MLAs and inducting several fresh faces.

As News18 had reported earlier, AAP has fielded Atishi from Kalkaji constituency while Raghav Chaddha will contest from Rajindra Nagar. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will once again contest from New Delhi constituency, from where he had defeated his predecessor Sheila Dikshit the last time around.

Other major changes include Vinay Mishra, the son of Purvanchali heavyweight Mahabal Mishra, from Dwarka instead of sitting MLA Adarsh Shastri, who is the grandson of former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri.

The decision could prove to be controversial since Adarsh had left his high paying job in Apple Inc to join AAP. Another decision that may raise eyebrows is the choice of Shoaib Iqbal, who has been fielded from Matia Mahal instead of sitting MLA Asim Ahmed Khan.

Both Iqbal and Mishra had just recently joined the Aam Aadmi Party.

Sitting MLAs have also been dropped in Timarpur, Kondli, Badarpur and Hari Nagar, while changes were also made in Chandni Chowk, Karawal Nagar, Bijwasan, Rajouri Garden and Gandhi Nagar.
