One of Kejriwal’s close aides, Kumar Vishwas is working at length in Amethi after he was given ticket to take on Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi. Similarly, other senior leaders like Gopal Rai, Shazia Ilmi and Sanjay Singh have also been kept away from Delhi.


In Delhi, most of the AAP candidates for the LS elections were common party workers till few days back, who worked really hard in their areas to create a name for themselves.

AAP had already made it clear that they won’t give LS tickets to their sitting MLAs from Delhi and that is why senior leader Manish Sisodia had been kept away from the Delhi Lok Sabha elections.

There were speculations that contrary to their party principles, Kejriwal and Ilmi might contest elections from South Delhi and New Delhi constituencies but once AAP released its fourth list on Monday, the matter was settled.

The top leaders from AAP, who are close to Kejriwal, would be working to strengthen the organization at the grass root level.  Their responsibility would also include creating a wave in favour of their LS candidates in Delhi.
