Senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel met Delhi Congress chief Sheila Dikshit at her residence here on Wednesday. According to sources, they are believed to have discussed among other things the issue of Congress-AAP alliance.
Dikshit had last week rejected all talks about an alliance between her party and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the city-state where seven Lok Sabha seats are at stake.
According to party sources, Ajay Maken, Sharmistha Mukherjee, and Archana Dalmia are top three contenders for the New Delhi seat while for the north-east Delhi Mudit Agarwal, Mateen Ahmed, and Ragini Nayak are in the fray.
The CEC on Thursday is likely to finalise the candidates for Delhi.
