The party has apparently as many as 1,368 candidates for 80 Lok Sabha constituencies or 17 claimants for each seat in the state. Though 60 percent of the applications filed are incomplete.

The AAP is now busy in scanning all the applications but sources said that many of the applicants have not furnished details as per the party criteria.

State coordination committee member Aruna Singh said that those who have not given all the desired details will be given a chance during interview.

“AAP will very soon start calling the claimants for interview,” she added.

Meanwhile, leaders of different political parties are joining merely one-year-old AAP. Former Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) state president Baba Hardev Singh recently joined the party though AAP is yet to decide on his responsibilities and is consulting with ground level workers.

According to the party sources, several people who are willing to contest elections on AAP tickets have not filed their applications so far. The reason behind it is that they are trying to get tickets from traditional political players like Congress, BJP, BSP and SP. If they failed to get tickets from these political outfits, they will switch their sides.
