With Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) having speculations over Kumar Vishwas fighting Lok Sabha seat from East Delhi, Congress might field Actor Rajpal Yadav from Delhi east constituency. Actor Rajpal Yadav met Delhi Congress president Sheila Dikshit on Thursday at her residence escalating the rumors over Delhi East Lok Sabha seat for the upcoming general elections.

A senior Congress leader has said that Rajpal Yadav has sought the party ticket from North East Delhi seat, which is currently held by Delhi BJP president and popular Bhojpuri singer-actor Manoj Tiwari.

Rajpal Yadav has confirmed his visit with Shiela Dikshit claiming that he often visits he house for party meetings. Yadav told the reporters that he is planning to contest the Lok Sabha polls from the East Delhi constituency.

He said that” my candidature will be made clear in 2-3 days.”

In 2016, Rajpal Yadav had floated the Sarva Sambhav Party.

With Congress-AAP alliance still on halt in Delhi, fielding candidate is not certain. When asked about the alliance, Congress President Rahul Gandhi said that his party is open for alliance all over the country. whereas, Arvind Kejriwal claimed that Rahul Gandhi has refused to forge an alliance with AAP.

Till now the two parties have failed to reach a consensus, with Congress trying hard to settle on three out of the total seven Lok Sabha seats in the capital and AAP willing to concede only two of them.

In the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, AAP polled 33% of the votes while Congress got 15%. Putting the share of the two parties together, that contributes to 48%, they would have defeated BJP by 2% of the votes, with BJP resorting to 46% of the votes.

In the recent developments, Manoj Tiwari met Kumar Vishwas and Sapna Chowdhary convincing them to campaign for BJP.

All seven Lok Sabha seats of the capital will go to polls on May 12, and the result will be announced on May 23.
