Jaipur: The first list of BJP can­di­dates for the Ra­jasthan Assem­bly elec­tions may be de­clared on Novem­ber 11. Meet­ing of the BJP Par­lia­men­tary Board, which is to de­cide on the ticket dis­tri­bu­tion, will be held on Novem­ber 11 in New Delhi, sources in the state unit said.

A list of prob­a­ble can­di­dates from Ra­jasthan will be pre­sented in this meet­ing. “Around 70 names are ex­pected to be fi­nalised,” a party of­fi­cial said.

Union Min­is­ter of State for Agri­cul­ture and Farm­ers Wel­fare and con­vener of BJP state elec­tion man­age­ment com­mit­tee, Ga­jen­dra Singh Shekhawat said, “The party’s Par­lia­men­tary Board has the right to de­cide the can­di­dates in the BJP. We will make pan­els of all seats and present it be­fore the par­lia­men­tary board. Par­lia­men­tary Board will then de­cide on the fi­nal can­di­dates from among the lot,” he said. He said the meet­ing has been sched­uled on Novem­ber 11 in Delhi.

Shekhawat said there are no dif­fer­ences within the party over the se­lec­tion of can­di­dates on any seat. “The whole party stands united and shall fight the elec­tion for a win. BJP’s elec­tion sym­bol Ka­mal (lo­tus) is the can­di­date on all seats,” he said.

The BJP had or­gan­ised a six-day feed­back pro­gramme last month and con­sulted party work­ers be­fore short­list­ing names.
