AAP leaders confirmed that the former Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh high court judge has rescued himself from the polls.

AAP state spokesman Vaibhav Maheshwari said that he informed the party that he would not be available for the Lok Sabha elections.

The party has now decided to field Archana Srivastava, a social worker, against Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

The BJP has fielded Supreme Court lawyer Ajay Agarwal whereas the BSP has given ticket to Ram Lakhan Passi from here.

In 2009, Sonia defeated BSP’s RS Kushwaha by over 3.5 lakh votes. BJP’s RB Singh managed to bag only 25,444 votes.
