The Congress on Tuesday released its seventh list of five candidates for the Lok Sabha elections, fielding R Sudha from Tamil Nadu’s Mayiladuthurai constituency.

The Congress announced candidates for four seats in Chhattisgarh and one in Tamil Nadu.

In Chhattisgarh, the party fielded Shashi Singh from Sarguja (ST), Menka Devi Singh from Raigarh, Devender Singh Yadav from Bilaspur and Biresh Thakur from Kanker (ST).

With this, the party has fielded a total of 194 candidates so far for the seven-phase Lok Sabha polls starting April 19.
