Akhileshpati Tripathi, a student, has been declared candidate for Model Town constituency; while a former IAF personnel and law graduate Mukesh Hooda will fight from Rohtas Nagar, an AAP statement said.
Aftab Ahmed, a teacher, will contest from North East Delhi`s Seelampur Assembly constituency; and Satyendra Jain, an architect from Sakur Basti.
