Delhi assembly polls: AAP to field strong candidate against Harsh Vardhan

New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party is
keen to field a strong candidate
against BJP’s Chief Ministerial
candidate Harsh Vardhan from
Krishna Nagar constituency in
forthcoming Delhi assembly
polls.
AAP was earlier planning to field
its star campaigner Kumar
Vishwas against Vardhan. The
party, however, claimed that it
never declared Vishwas as party
candidate from Krishna Nagar
and was still searching for a
strong contestant.
“We had discussions on his
name, but we felt his services
would be required for all
assembly constituencies as he is
our star campaigner, so we have
dropped the idea to field him,” a
senior party leader said.
He said, Vishwas had never
expressed his desire to contest
polls and “it would be not in
anybody’s favour to bind him in
one constituency, when he is in
demand everywhere.”
The Arvind Kejriwal-led party,
which is making its electoral
debut in the December 4 Delhi
Assembly elections, had finalised
its candidate — a civil engineer,
Sushil Chauhan — from Krishna
Nagar Assembly constituency but
he withdrew citing “family
reasons”.
The party is in a dilemma in
deciding a prominent political
face who can take on the senior
BJP leader and four-time MLA,
whom Kejriwal had termed as
“Manmohan Singh of BJP” after
his name was cleared by BJP’s
parliamentary committee as the
Chief Ministerial candidate.
