Commenting on the Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) first list for Lok Sabha polls which has pitched party Spokesperson Ashutosh to contest against Minister of Communication and Information Technology Kapil Sibal, the latter on Sunday said that whoever would be contesting against him would have to struggle a lot.


"Someone or the other candidate is likely to compete with me, but whoever the person is, he or she would have to struggle," said Sibal.

"I would just like to wish him good luck," he said.

Earlier in the day, AAP announced that it would field journalist-turned politician Ashutosh against Union Minister Kapil Sibal and Mukul Tripathi against External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid.
