The only ray of hope that lingers around is that MLAs with a criminal record will have to appear before the AICC's screening committee and present their details and only those with a clean record stand a chance.

While some supported Dikshit, others were of the panel's opinion. As of now the list looks like a repeat of most sitting MLAs.
