Finally BJP announced its first list for Punjab elections
Finally BJP announced its first list of its MLA candidates for the upcoming Punjab elections.In its first list of candidates, BJP has declared 17 candidates. Senior BJP leader JP Nada announced the candidature of the contestants.
Important point here is that , names of all the present ministers in the government are not included in this list. BJP will be fielding in total 23 candidates in the state and rest of the seats will be contested by its partner party SAD and both will together fight on 117 seats.
Tarun Chug is BJP candidate from Amritsar Central. Rajinder Mohan singh chinna will be fighting by election seat at Amrtisar to be elected for Lok Sabha, vacated by congress leader Captain Amarinder Singh.
BJP has also announced its two candidates for Goa elections which will polled on 4th of February 2017, along with Punjab elections.
BJP is bit late in declaring candidates, because this time the trend is moving along the AAP party which declared the candidates long back which forced others to declare there candidates too. Under pressure ruling party SAD also declared their first list on 16th November last year. The trend was catching fast and only BJP and congress were left behind and now when BJP has declared their list, pressure should be on Congress party.
