      Among the three, Sanjay Singh's name was almost confirmed. Singh has been campaign committee in-charge in three elections but has never contested one. Born in 1972 in Sultanpur, Uttar Pradesh, Singh was an activist before joining AAP.

      Sushil Gupta is a billionaire who works in the education and health sectors. ND Gupta, on the other hand, is considered an expert on GST and has authored several books on accountancy and business, a TOI report said.

      The AAP had last year approached former RBI governor Raghuram Rajan in this regard but he declined the offer. There were reports that the party talked to former Chief Justice of India TS Thakur who also did not agree to it.

      Elections for three Rajya Sabha seats from Delhi is set to be held on January 16. The AAP, which has a huge majority in the Delhi Assembly, is likely to win all the three seats.

      The last date to file nominations for the three Rajya Sabha seats is January 5.
