MCD polls: AAP cancels tickets of 14 candidates; some cry foul

To keep a clean image, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has continued its drive by replacing 14 of its candidates, whose names were announced earlier for the upcoming municipal corporation polls to be held on April 23.

However, the development has not gone well with those whose name has been removed from the list, claimed report. A few days ago the AAP had replaced one candidate with today’s move 15 candidates across the three civic agencies dominated by the BJP.

Candidates replaced are from Adarsh Nagar, Lakshmi Park, Haiderpur, Jama Masjid, Karampura, Kishan Ganj under SDMC; Karawal Nagar East and Nandgiri in EDMC and Sri Niwas Puri, Jaitpur, Manglapuri and Govind Puri.

“The FIR against me is politically motivated and I have also got an anticipatory bail in the case last year. At least the party should give me the reason behind cancelling my ticket,” said Vijay Pawaria, who ticket was cancelled from Mangalpuri (S-33) early this week as reported by PTI.

It has been reported that to pacify upset candidates the party called them. But of them many returned back “not satisfied.” The development has led to debate in Okhla whether tickets of more such candidates will be cancelled in the coming day.
