Rajasthan . Even though the Election Commission has not made any announcement for the assembly elections of 5 states to be held at the end of the year. But Bharatiya Janata Party has already started preparing for the elections. BJP is looking at these elections being held just before the Lok Sabha elections as semi-finals. The responsibility of election campaign is being taken by the central leadership itself.
On Monday, Prime Minister Modi campaigned for the party in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. After PM’s visit to Bhopal, the party released the second list of candidates in Madhya Pradesh on Monday night. At the same time, the party is going to give tickets in Rajasthan on the lines of Madhya Pradesh. This has already been indicated by the party.
Names of candidates can be announced any time
After Madhya Pradesh, now the first list of BJP candidates in Rajasthan can be released any time. The party has finalized the names of candidates for more than two dozen assembly seats. After the consensus reached in the state core committee on these names, the national leadership of the party has also agreed. In the first list of candidates, BJP is including most of the seats on which it has a strong position. Also, names of candidates may be released in the first list for about five to six seats considered the weakest.
The list of candidates was submitted two weeks ago
The national leadership of BJP had asked for a list of names of possible candidates for 65 seats from the leaders included in the core committee about two weeks ago. These leaders had submitted their respective lists to the leadership. Of these, two dozen seats are Bundi, Kota South, Ladpura, Ramganjmandi, Jhalarapatan, Khanpur, Asind, Bhilwara, Vidhadhar Nagar, Sanganer, Udaipur, Rajsamand, Ajmer North and Ajmer South, Beawar, Bikaner East, Ratangarh, Alwar City, Sojat, Pali. , is in a strong position in Bali, Sursagar, Chaumu, Phulera and Jhotwara seats.
At the same time, according to sources, the weakest seats for BJP include Nawalgarh, Sikrai, Lalsot, Fatehpur, Dantaramgarh, Vallabhnagar, Bari, Bassi, Todabhim, Nathdwara, Bagidaura, Sanchore and Sardarpura.
The name of the scoundrels will be in the first list
A leader of the core committee said that almost a consensus has been reached on letting Lok Sabha MP Diya Kumari, Sukhbir Singh Jaunapuriya and Rajya Sabha MP Kirori Lal Meena contest the assembly elections. According to sources, the names of former CM Vasundhara Raje, Leader of Opposition Rajendra Rathore, Deputy Leader Satish Poonia, Kirori Lal Meena and Diya Kumari will be included in the first list.
No to nepotism candidates should win
The party does not want to promote nepotism under any circumstances in the upcoming elections. A member of the core committee said that there are clear instructions from the national leadership that tickets will not be given to the relatives of any MP or senior leader.
The argument being made regarding this is that in the 2018 elections, BJP had given tickets to relatives of leaders on 15 seats. Of these, only three could win, the remaining one dozen seats were lost. In such a situation, the party believes that voters do not like dynasticism.
