Dhir was speaker in the previous Delhi Assembly. He won after defeating Talvinder Singh Marwah from Jangpura seat in the previous assembly elections in Delhi. Besides Dhir, party has also decided not to give ticket to its Trilokpuri MLA Raju Dhigan.
Ticket to Trilokpuri MLA is being denied as the party says, he could not stop and control the riots properly which took place on Diwali.
"Though nobody is saying that Raju Dhingan played a part in the riots, the feedback team has pointed to deficiencies in the aftermath of the riots. He did not seem too visible at a time when people of the area needed support. He lost ground because of his seeming inaction," a leader was quoted as saying in an Indian Express report.
It is also being alleged by the party that Dhingan delayed in visiting those who were admitted to hospital.
"In the aftermath of a riot, there are many things that can be done to calm the situation down and bring help to the people of the area. That did not happen," a leader was quoted as saying in the report.
Few days back AAP had denied tickets to its two MLAs, Rajesh Garg from Rohini and Harish Khanna from Timarpur.
