Delhi Congress chief Sheila Dikshit on Saturday said the candidates for the seven Lok Sabha seats in the national capital will be declared in a couple of days.

"The party will announce the candidates tomorrow or day after," Dikshit said.

The former Chief Minister of Delhi had also said that the party will decide over fielding her from any Lok Sabha constituency. Earlier, there were reports that she might contest elections from Chandni Chowk.  

She made this announcement to the media during the inaugration ceremony of a control room at the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) office for the Lok Sabha election campaign.

The centralised control room will coordinate with the control rooms in all the seven Lok Sabha constituencies in Delhi and disseminate relevant information regarding the Congress candidates' election campaign, the DPCC said.

The control room will use social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Shakti App,  WhatsApp, SMS, and Voice Call extensively for the election campaign.

There are seven separate desks at the DPCC control room to collate information from all the seven parliamentary constituencies, including the detailed campaign schedule, meetings and other programmes of each of the Congress candidate, it said.

It will also provide information regarding UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi's public meetings and Congress president Rahul Gandhi and AICC general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's road shows, the DPCC said.
