Activist-turned-politician and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal will take on Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit in the Delhi assembly elections, AAP aaid Sunday.

"Kejirwal will contest directly against Dikshit. We have taken the decision after a meeting of our party's volunteers," party leader Manish Sisodia told IANS.

Dikshit represents Gole Market in the Delhi assembly.

"Dikshit is the driving force of corruption and she should be directly challenged by Kejriwal. If Dikshit changes her constituency, then he (Kejriwal) will also change his constituency," Sisodia said.

AAP has released the first shortlist of 44 probable candidates for 12 seats in the coming assembly elections scheduled in November.
