Earlier, there were conjectures that BJP leaders Yashwant Sinha and Shatrughan Sinha will be Aam Aadmi Party candidates on the two seats. Speaking to media, party’s Delhi unit chief Gopal Rai said Yashwant Sinha was approached to contest from New Delhi seat but he decided to campaign against PM Narendra Modi across the country.
