Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended the meeting of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Central Election Committee (CEC) at the party headquarters in Delhi on Sunday. The meeting of the BJP’s election committee is currently underway. BJP chief JP Nadda welcomed Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the party headquarters as he arrived for the meeting. The meeting scheduled to finalize the candidates for the upcoming assembly elections in Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan is underway at the party headquarters in the national capital.
The meeting was also attended by key saffron party leaders including BJP chief JP Nadda, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and Union Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal.
Senior leaders including Vasundhara Raje, Gajendra Singh Shekhawat and Pralhad Joshi also attended the Election Commission meeting.
According to reports, candidates for around 60 to 70 seats in Rajasthan will be discussed in the BJP’s election committee meeting, while those for 31 seats in Chhattisgarh will be approved today in the presence of Prime Minister Modi.
The BJP is actively refining its election strategies for five states going to polls, including Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. The party has divided all constituencies in these states into different groups called A, B, C and D.
Category A includes seats where the party has consistently performed well, while Category B includes seats where the BJP has a mixed record of wins and losses. Category C includes seats where the party is considered to be on relatively weaker footing. In contrast, the category D seats have seen continuous defeats by the BJP in the last three elections, PTI reported.
The elections for Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh are likely to be scheduled for December 2023. The dates for the elections have not been announced by the Election Commission of India (ECI).
