Stating that so far the party had announced the names of 12 candidates, Mr. Raj said the IJP would field around 45 to 50 candidates. "We will concentrate on seats which are not being contested by the BSP to benefit the Congress. The BSP has always opposed the Congress, but now its workers are feeling cheated and want to teach a lesson to both the Congress and the BSP."
According to Mr. Raj, more BSP workers would be joining hands with the IJP. "On earlier occasions when the BSP had split, only its leaders joined the Congress or the BJP and failed to erode its vote bank. However, BSP workers are now disappointed with Mayawati and have aligned with us whose impact will be clearly visible during the elections."
Accusing the BSP president, Mayawati, of not favouring women, Mr. Raj said the BSP's list of 40 candidates from Delhi does not have a single woman, while the IJP has already given tickets to two women. "Facing legal trouble in the Taj Corridor scam and deserted by the BJP, Mayawati has now allied with the Congress forgetting all the principles and the ideology of B.R. Ambedkar," alleged Mr. Raj.
The seven candidates are Vijay Pal Singh (Nasirpur), Sarala Singh (Kalkaji), Narendra Malawalia (Ambedkar Nagar), Sunil Shanshi (Wazirpur), Mohammed Yasin (Malviya Nagar), Prabodh Jha (Karawal Nagar) and Prakash Singh (Jangpura).
