New Delhi: The Congress party on Friday nominated J.P. Agarwal from north-east Delhi seat and Ramesh Kumar from south Delhi for the Lok Sabha polls, a party release said.
The party had earlier appointed Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar from those seat, respectively. However, their candidature was withdrawn following the incident of a Sikh journalist hurling a shoe at home minister P. Chidambaram.
The journalist was protesting Central Bureau of Investigation’s clean chit to Tytler in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.
While, Ramesh Kumar is the brother of Sajjan Kumar, Agarwal is a sitting Rajya Sabha member.
