A senior Delhi Congress leader said that Rajpal Yadav sought the party ticket from North East Delhi seat, currently held by Delhi BJP president and popular Bhojpuri singer-actor Manoj Tiwari.

"However, talks are on for an alliance with AAP and nothing is certain so far. So no commitment was made to him," said the Congress leader.

In 2016, Yadav had floated the Sarva Sambhav Party.

"Everything will be clear in 2-3 days," Yadav said when asked whether he will contest on a Congress ticket or as a candidate of his own outfit.
