New Delhi: A day after launching 'Delhi Dialogue' campaign gearing up for the election in the national capital, the Aam Aadmi Party on Thursday released the first list of 22 candidates for the upcoming assembly election in Delhi.

Holding a press conference AAP leader Sanjay Singh announced the names of the candidates the party will be fielding for the polls in the national capital.
