The party has also given tickets to recent entrants from the Congress, including Shoaib Iqbal and Prahlad Singh Sawhney. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal
will contest from the New Delhi seat and Manish Sisodia
from Patparganj. Pandey will contest from Timarpur, Marlena from Kalkaji, and Chadha from Rajendra Nagar. Among those dropped are Adarsh Shastri, the grandson of Lal Bahadur Shastri, and Timarpur MLA Panjaj Pushkar.
