AAP dumps Wazirpur candidate for ‘hiding facts’

A day after declaring its last list of candidates for the Delhi Assembly elections, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today dropped its Wazirpur candidate for “hiding certain facts”. The party dropped Suresh Bhardwaj as a large section of the supporters expressed their “displeasure” over the decision, AAP leader Ashutosh said in a press conference here. Rajesh Gupta will now be contesting from Wazirpur constituency on AAP ticket, he added.

According to sources, the decision came following an internal investigation conducted by the party over a complaint received against Bhardwaj. “This candidate was given preference over others because of the positive feedback received by the party but despite this there were reports that Bhardwaj had hid certain facts,” the party sources said.
