"I congratulate Arvind today that I accept my martyrdom". Delhi Congress chief and former Union minister Ajay Maken, however, had a different tale to tell about Sushil Gupta, whose net worth is estimated to be a staggering Rs 164 crore. There are some prominent names doing the rounds but Sanjay Singh is the only name that has emerged without any disagreement from anyone.
After that, the party considered leaders from within and the name of Sanjay Singh was accepted by almost everyone involved. Ex-AAP leader Yogendra Yadav tweeted.
As per the reports, the party does not plan to field any of its leaders for the three seats in Delhi which got vacant in January.
Over the past few weeks, Vishwas had not made any secret of his ambition of becoming a Rajya Sabha member. Meanwhile the AAP in Delhi has claimed to win all three seats, as it enjoys a majority in the 70-member Delhi assembly. The elections for the three Rajya Sabha seats from Delhi would be held on January 16.
Party sources said that after considering the names of personalities such as former Reserve Bank of India Governor Raghuram Rajan, and party insiders, they have nearly finalised the names of Mr. Sushil Gupta and Mr. N.D. Gupta.
