The six names were shortlisted at a meeting of its political affairs committee.

AAP’s Rajendra Nagar MLA Durgesh Pathak said the party had chalked a blueprint on how to keep Delhi clean and beautiful.

“Delhiites dream of making the city a clean and glorious one. It is the capital of the country, the city needs to be transformed in such a way that people from all over the world see it as a model capital.

“(Chief Minister) Arvind Kejriwal has made a complete blueprint of how this dream will be fulfilled,” Pathak said.

Senior AAP leader Atishi, who also accompanied the mayor and deputy mayor candidates, said Delhiites had handed the responsibility of the city’s cleanliness to the AAP and the party would tackle the garbage menace effectively.

“We just hope that the BJP does not train its guns on the shoulders of any Independent candidate. The people of Delhi have given the responsibility of cleanliness to the Aam Aadmi Party,” she said.
