Delhi election 2020: Three Som Dutts in Sadar Bazar, 2 Imran Khans and one 'Nathu Ram' in fray in today's Assembly polls

New Delhi: The list of candidates for the high-stakes Delhi polls is a heady mix with three namesakes fighting from the Sadar Bazar constituency, two Imran Khans fielded by a nondescript party from the neighbouring seats and a Nathu Ram trying their luck in the 8 February elections.

The two Khans — Imran Khan and Imran Matlub Khan — fighting the polls on tickets from the Tipu Sultan Party, are testing their fortunes from adjoining Karawal Nagar and Mustafad constituencies, respectively, the party symbol being a kettle.

A total of 672 candidates are in the fray for the Delhi polls, largely being seen as a triangular contest among the ruling AAP, the Congress and the BJP banking on its aggressive campaigning and Modi star power.

But, little known parties and independents have added a flavour the elections to the 70-member Delhi Assembly, with quirky and unusual names, and namesakes adding a dash of humour to it.

The AAP has renominated Som Dutt from the Sadar Bazar seat. But two independent candidates -- Som Dutt (symbol brush) and Somdutt (symbol ice cream) are also in the fray from the same seat. Candidate Nathu Ram has been fielded by the CPM from Wazirpur.

Other candidates include Vikas from Aapki Apni Party (Peoples) — symbol battery torch —from Model Town; and Iswar, an independent fighting on a bat symbol from Delhi Cantonment.

Then there is a woman candidate, who goes by the name of Vimla @Bimla from Sabse Badi Party (symbol matchbox), fighting from Shahdara.

Among unusual party names, Mazdoor Ekta Party has fielded Surender Kumar from Matiala (symbol plate containing food); Aapki Apni Party (Peoples) has fielded Sonu Kaushik, and Peoples Party of India (Democratic) with a basket containing fruits symbol, has given the ticket to Hemraj in the Timarpur seat.
