Congress to Short­list Can­di­dates for Assem­bly Elec­tions by Septem­ber-end

The Day After - - STATES DIARY -

The Congress is still work­ing on its short­list of can­di­dates for the up­com­ing assem­bly elec­tions in Mad­hya Pradesh, Ch­hat­tis­garh, Ra­jasthan and Mi­zo­ram, in spite of a dead­line of Au­gust 15 for the an­nounce­ment. But the process is still mov­ing faster than usual and will most likely be com­pleted by the end of Septem­ber for the polls that are sched­uled in Novem­ber and De­cem­ber. The screen­ing com­mit­tees are yet to meet be­cause the process of get­ting feed­back from work­ers on the ground is tak­ing longer than usual. The screen­ing com­mit­tee will start the pro­ceed­ings by Septem­ber 1 and com­plete its job by the end of Septem­ber.

The polls in Ra­jasthan, Mad­hya Pradesh and Chat­tis­garh will see a di­rect bat­tle be­tween the Congress and the BJP as all three states are BJP-ruled. But, in Mi­zo­ram, Congress has a tough job to re­tain the North East state un­der its kitty.
