A sub-committee under the party's Political Affairs Committee has been formed to look into AAP's prospects in the Lok Sabha elections.

"Senior PAC member Sanjay Singh and AAP's National General Secretary Pankaj Gupta have been appointed to formalize strategy, decide procedure and selection of candidates for the Lok Sabha polls," AAP senior leader Yogendra Yadav told reporters on Thursday.

Even as AAP is yet to decide on several aspects, the party has expedited the process and taken few decisions.

"In the coming days, members of the central committee will go to different states and party committees and district units in various states to analyze the party position," AAP spokesperson Sanjay Singh said.

He said the Aam Aadmi Party has issued a form inviting applications from candidates interested in contesting the Lok Sabha polls.

On the question of applicants forging signature to get party's ticket, Singh said many candidatures were rejected during the Delhi Assembly elections due to this reason.

"The forms are in English and Hindi. Forms can be filled online also. Presently, they are available at our offices and the website. Forms can be sent through post or sent to our e-mail id," said AAP’s Pankaj Gupta.

About speculation that Laxmi Nagar MLA Vindo Kumar Binny may contest the Lok Sabha polls, Yadav said Binny is a senior AAP member and the party will take a final decision in this regard.

"Where one should be used it is a very big thing...You will get to know later," Yadav said.

"Binny has made many sacrifices for the party and to think that all this work he did was because he had ambitions to become a minister is totally wrong. I was very shocked when I read that such an image was created for person who started his political career with sacrifice before AAP came into existence and has been sacrificing on all stages," he added.

Talking about the selection process for candidates Yadav said the party will focus on selection of candidates with clean image.

"Honest people associated with other parties and organizations and feeling suffocated are welcome in AAP. Even members of other social organizations, farmers' organizations should come forward," he said.
