New Delhi: Banker Meera Sanyal and activist Mayank Gandhi figured in the AAP's first list of probable candidates released late last night for forthcoming Lok Sabha elections in Maharashtra while no senior leader's name featured from Delhi and Haryana.

Sanyal, a former chief executive officer of Royal Bank of Scotland who joined AAP recently, has been named as probable candidate from Mumbai South constituency while Gandhi's name has been declared from North-west Mumbai.

Of the 48 parliamentary seats in Maharashtra, the party has released the names of probable candidates from Mumbai, Nagpur, Thane, Pune and Nashik. Vijay Pandhare, a former engineer with the Maharashtra government, has been named as probable candidate from Nashik.

Pandhare played a major role in unearthing the irrigation scam that led to the resignation of Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar.
