Dilip Varma will be party's candidate from Mahasi assembly seat in UP, the SP leaders said.

The first list comprises 57 candidates for Madhya Pradesh and 17 for Rajasthan, besides those for Delhi.

Asked from where the CM would seek his election to the assembly, Singh said, "It has not been decided yet. We have enough time for it."
