New Delhi, Apr 21: Delhi Congress chief Sheila Dikshit on Saturday said that the names of candidates for the seven Lok Sabha seats in the national capital will be announced in a couple of days.

"The party will announce the candidates tomorrow or day after," Dikshit said while inaugurating a control room at the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) office for the general elections campaign on Saturday.

Have given Congress last chance to form alliance for Delhi polls: AAP

AAP, on the other hand, has already ruled out chances of an alliance in Delhi.

She was talking to reporters after inaugurated a control room at the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) office for the Lok Sabha election campaign.

"The party will announce the candidates tomorrow or day after," Dikshit said.

AAP, on the other hand, has already ruled out chances of an alliance in Delhi.

Earlier, AAP had demanded that the seat-sharing pact should give the party at least 33 seats in Haryana, Punjab and Goa along with Delhi. This did not go down well with the Congress and the talks fell through.

The Congress had proposed a 4-3 formula for an alliance in Delhi, offering four seats to the AAP. It had opted for the Chandni Chowk, North West Delhi and the New Delhi seats for itself. AAP, however, said that if the alliance was limited only to Delhi, the Congress would have to contest on just two seats.

Delhi will go to polls in the sixth phase of Lok Sabha elections on May 12.
