New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party on Thursday said it will contest over 350 Lok Sabha seats and vowed to take on tainted candidates and political leaders who have become "symbols" of corruption and criminalization of politics.

The fledgling party, which made a stunning debut in the recent Delhi assembly polls, said it would contest elections against 14 Union ministers as well as A Raja allegedly involved in the 2G spectrum scam.

"We have received reports from our state conveners and looking at the response from different seats, it has been decided that the Aam Aadmi Party will contest more than 350 seats in the Lok Sabha elections," senior party leader and political affairs committee (PAC) member Sanjay Singh told reporters.

He was briefing on the issues discussed in the national executive committee (NEC) meeting held here. The meeting, second in a month, assumes significance as the party discussed strategies ahead of Lok Sabha election.
