AAP leader Sanjay Singh has said that AAP candidates will be filing  for nominations with the party ticket, AA

"In order to stop BJP we were ready for an alliance with Congress, but Congress is in no mood to stop BJP and for a coalition. It is a matter of sadness, that even after so many efforts, Congress is not ready for any kind of compromise. When we met Azad yesterday, we had said that JJP will fight from three seats, AAP from one and Congress from six seats. We had agreed on four seats for AAP in Delhi. After Azad's and Hooda's comments, it appears that they don't want to have any talks with us. Congress is not willing to compromise on seat sharing. We will fight alone in Delhi and with JJP in Haryana," he said.
