Lucknow: After tasting electoral success in Delhi, Aam Aadmi Party today said it would contest the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls from 20 states, including Uttar Pradesh, where it would field candidates on all 80 seats.  “The national executive of AAP has decided to contest Lok Sabha polls in 20 states including UP, where we would contest on all 80 Lok Sabha seats,” AAP National Spokesman Sanjay Singh told reporters here.

He said Kumar Vishwas was likely to contest against Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi in Amethi, while candidates against prominent leaders like Sonia Gandhi and Mulayam Singh Yadav would be decided soon.  

“We will try to finalise names of candidates by February 15 and all those desiring to contest Lok Sabha polls can apply by January 15. However, those applying would have to be recommended by at least 100 persons each from all the assembly constituencies in his or her area,” he said.  The applications would be scrutinised by district and state-level monitoring committees before finalisation of names, Singh said.
