In the poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will be going to fight on all 230 seats.
80 per cent tickets are kept for new faces, AAP's chief ministerial candidate and state president Alok Agrawal said on Sunday. The party did not contest the 2013 MP Assembly polls.
"We will give tickets in the forthcoming MP Assembly polls to 80 per cent new faces including ex-army men, engineers, managers, doctors and young professionals. People have grown sick of the old faces of other parties," news agency PTI quoted Agrawal as saying.

So far, the party has picked 119 nominees for the MP polls.
AAP stands a strong chance to emerge as the third force in the state given that a strong anti-incumbency wave is at work against the saffron party, said Agrawal and added that the ruling BJP has failed on all counts.
He stressed that his party has a strong organisational base to take on the BJP and the Congress in the state.
