Disputes, if any, subject to jurisdiction in New Delhi

New Delhi: After the announcement of the general elections, the first list of the BJP, lagging behind other parties in the selection of candidates, could come about on Saturday. There can be a decision about the candidates in the meeting of the party’s central election committee.

Many senior leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah, will be present in this meeting. Most of the first phase candidates can be included in this list. In the first round, voting will be held in 91 seats on 11 April.

In the first list of BJP, in addition to the 42 seats in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, some seats from western Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Delhi, West Bengal, Odisha, and Maharashtra may be included.

Telangana and Andhra will witness voting in the first round. Apart from this, some seats from other states will see voting in the first round. The Lok Sabha election is being held in seven phases for 543 seats. The result will be out on 23 May.

Candidate will change, keeping in mind anti-incumbency

It is believed that PM Narendra Modi can take a decision to launch new candidates in many such seats, where the resentment against the current MPs is showing. In such a situation, this meeting of the party is going to be important, and in the first phase, the rebels can get angry.

Report cards of MPs

The BJP has taken feedback on ticket aspirants through several sources — including three surveys of its own as well as two by the RSS — to figure out which sitting MPs must be nominated again and who all are likely to face dissatisfaction or wrath of the voters.

Apart from this, MPs have been asked to provide information about the work they have done during their tenure. This may be considered to be report cards of MPs. Through this, the party has arrived at the decision of election nominations.
