The curtains are finally down on the now-on, now-off Congress and Aam Aadmi Party alliance in Delhi with the Congress on Monday naming six of the seven Lok Sabha candidates from the city state.

Former Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit will contest on the Congress ticket from northeast Delhi and former Delhi Congress chief Ajay Makan will be a candidate from New Delhi, which he has earlier represented in the Lok Sabha.

Another ex-Delhi Congress chief Arvinder Lovely will fight from East Delhi and former state minister Mahabal Mishra from West Delhi.

Former MP JP Agarwal will contest from Chandni Chowk.

The Congress and the AAP alliance which has been under works for over two months is finally off ending speculation on whether the two rival parties will come together to challenge the BJP in Delhi.
