New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday declared its second list of candidates for the Uttarakhand Assembly elections. The list comprises names of eight candidates. While Gajendra Chauhan has been fielded from the Srinagar assembly seat, Arvind Verma has been chosen to contest from Kotdwar.

Other candidates who have been chosen to contest the elections include Sagar Pandey, Bhuvan Arya, Jarnail Singh Kali and Kulwant Singh who have been fielded from Bhimtal, Nainital (SC), Gadarpur and Kichha assembly seats respectively.

Out of the 70 assembly seats in Uttarkhand, AAP has declared candidates for 42 seats so far. Uttarakhand will go to the Assembly polls in a single phase on February 14.

Last week, on Saturday, Chief Election Commissioner Sushil Chandra announced the poll schedule for five states including Uttarakhand. The counting of votes in Uttar Pradesh, Goa, Punjab, Manipur and Uttarakhand will be held on March 10.

In the wake of the COVID-19 surge, the Commission directed that no physical political rallies and roadshows will be allowed till January 15, however, further rallies and election campaign meetings will be allowed only in earmarked places and with prior permissions of district administration.

Meanwhile, the Uttarakhand Government has prohibited all political rallies and protests in the state until January 16 in view of the rising COVID-19 cases.
