Transport trader Harjeet Singh, who was a part of the 2012 Anna Hazare-led anti-corruption movement, was today named as the Aam Aadmi Party’s Rajouri Garden candidate for the April 9 bypoll. The west Delhi seat had fallen vacant after Jarnail Singh had resigned as MLA to contest in the Punjab Assembly polls.

The decision was taken by the the Political Affairs Committee (PAC), which is the AAP’s top decision making body headed by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

A Delhi University graduate, Singh runs a transport business and had worked in the corporate sector for several years.

“In 2012, he joined the Anna movement and went on to become a member of the Aam Aadmi Party.

“He went on to become a committed party leader and one of the pillars of Aam Aadmi Party in west Delhi. He has held various positions including party observer of Rajouri Garden Assembly seat. Until recently, he was Chairman of Rajdhani College,” said an AAP statement.
