Written by Pallavi Parmar

Aam Admi Party nominated candidates for Rajya Sabha today. As per the reports, the list of Rajya Sabha nominees includes the names of Sanjay Singh, ND Gupta and Sushil Gupta. And the decision was taken at the Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence. Just after the decision, the AAP leader Kumar Vishwas slammed party chief Arvind Kejriwal. He said Arvind Kejriwal is a dictator and I punished for speaking truth. Today, the AAP party announced the name of the leaders for the Rajya Sabha candidates. Apart from Kumar Vishvas, the party has chosen Chartered Accountant Navin Gupta, businessman-cum-social worker Sushil Gupta and its leader Sanjay Singh.

The name of the founder member Kumar Vishvas has not even considered by the AAP party for the Rajya Sabha candidates. Therefore, Kumar Vishwas banged on AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal. The party’s highest decision-making body, Political Affairs Committee has formally approved the decision. Aam Admi Party has chosen three members for the election of Rajya Sabha seats from Delhi which would conduct on 16th January 2018. Whereas, the last date to file the nominations for Rajya Sabha’s three seats is 5th January 2018.

As per the reports, the party does not plan to field any of its leaders for the three seats in Delhi which got vacant in January. However, earlier the party had approached former Reserve Bank of India Governor Raghuram Rajan to offer him a seat, but he declined the offer. Moreover, today AAP’s deputy CM Manish Sisodia chose three members to contest for the Rajya Sabha seats. As the Aam Admi Party has the full majority in Delhi, so there are chances for the party to win all the seats. The party chose Sushil Gupta who is agriculturist and social activist. In 2013, Sushil Gupta contested assembly polls on Congress ticket from Moti Nagar seat, but recently he resigned from the Congress party.
