New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal led-Aam Aadmi Party on Thursday released the second list of candidates for the upcoming General Elections.
According to reports, the names of 30 candidates finalised by the party for the crucial Lok Sabha polls feature in this list.

“The names of all candidates will be on AAP`s website for next 5 days, anyone who has details about the candidates can put it on website, AAP leader Manish Sisodia said.
The step is a clear indication that AAP is fast gearing up for the upcoming General Elections and fine-tuning its strategies for it. AAP leader Yogendra Yadav had made it clear last week that his party would contest the coming Lok Sabha polls under Kejriwal`s leadership.
