New Delhi, Apr 23: The BJP on Tuesday announced singer Hans Raj Hans' candidature from North-West Delhi, hours before the deadline for filing of nomination.

Udit Raj, the incumbent MP from North-West, had threatened to resign and contest as an independent if his candidature was not announced from the seat.

This was one of the reasons behind the delay in announcing Hans' candidature, party insiders said. Hans will take on Guggan Singh of the AAP and Rajesh Lilothia of the Congress.

Udit Raj had merged his Indian Justice Party with the BJP in February 2014 and later won the election from North West Delhi. The BJP won all seven seats in Delhi in the 2014 election.

Hans Raj will contest against Congress' Rajesh Lilothia and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)'s Gugan Singh.

Meenakshi Lekhi will contest from South Delhi. She faces Congress's Ajay Maken and AAP's Brajesh Goel.
