"The Shiromani Akali Dal will fight from four seats in Delhi as per the formula of our alliance with the BJP," Akali Dal Delhi unit president Manjeet Singh G.K. Said.

Manjinder Singh Sirsa will be contesting from Rajouri Garden, Harmeet Singh Kalka from Kalkaji and Jitender Singh Shunty from Shahdara.

The party left out Shyam Sharma from the Hari Nagar seat and instead chose Avtar Singh Hit.

All the three candidates - Sirsa, Kalka and Shunty - had fought the 2013 polls from the same constituencies and won.

Sharma, however, had lost from Hari Nagar. Of the four candidates, Sirsa will contest on the Akali Dal's weighing scale symbol, while the other three candidates will fight on the BJP's lotus symbol.

In the 2013 polls, Kalka and Shunty had contested on the BJP's symbol while Sirsa and Sharma had contested on the Akali Dal's symbol.

The Akali Dal said it was the party's "strategy" to field three of its candidates on the lotus symbol. Delhi goes to polls on February 7 and the results will be declared on February 10.
