Amidst strong speculation that the Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) could tie up for the Lok Sabha elections, the AAP on Saturday announced the names of candidates for six of the seven parliamentary constituencies in the national capital.

AAP’s Delhi Convenor Gopal Rai said the party was yet to take a call on the West Delhi seat.

“The party has decided to field Pankaj Gupta from Chandni Chowk, Dilip Pandey from North East Delhi, Atishi from East Delhi, Brajesh Goel from New Delhi, Gugan Singh from North West Delhi and Raghav Chadha from South Delhi,” Rai said.

The announcement comes amid persisting speculation that there may be a tie-up between the AAP and the Congress for the Lok Sabha battle although the Congress’ Delhi unit is known to be bitterly opposed to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his party.

Some reports say that Congress President Rahul Gandhi is inclined for seat adjustments with AAP and has cleared initiation of talks with the party.

“Perhaps the time has come for us to take a closer look at the role of diet in mental health because it could be that healthy diet choices contribute to mental health,” said lead author Jim E Banta, Associate Professor at Loma Linda University, California.

“More research is needed before we can answer definitively, but the evidence seems to be pointing in that direction,” Banta added.

The findings provide “additional evidence that public policy and clinical practice should more explicitly aim to improve diet quality among those struggling with mental health”.

It also pointed out that “dietary interventions for people with mental illness should especially target young adults, those with less than 12 years of education, and obese individuals.”
