New Delhi, Jan 5: As the Delhi Chief Minister Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is all set to contest the Lok Sabha elections 2014, the party has 'raised the bar' for the aspiring candidates.

According to ET report, where it had asked every aspirant to collect 100 signatures of supporters for the assembly elections, now it wants them to get the same number of endorsements from each assembly segment of a Lok Sabha seat.

In Delhi, each Lok Sabha constituency in Delhi has 10 assembly seats. Hence, candidates must have a backing of at least 1,000 voters.

The 12-page form seeks details about the candidate's immediate family members, sources of income, criminal record, educational details, affiliation to other political parties and organisations.

The form has 15 separate points in which the candidate will not only have to give his personal details, he will also have to give the details of his family background.

AAP has announced it will contest "maximum" number of seats in most states.

On Saturday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal reportedly asked the media to continue scrutinising his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to keep it on its toes so that it can rectify its mistakes.

He also said that he will campaign for his party during the Lok Sabha elections due in a few months but not contest the polls himself.

Yesterday, Senior AAP leader Yogendra Yadav had said, "My dream is to see Kejriwal as Prime Minister. He is capable of it but in politics one has to see... strength and where we stand."

AAP has announced it will contest "maximum" number of seats in most states in upcoming Lok Sabha polls and the first list of its candidates will be out in the next 10-15 days.
