BJP releases second list of candidates for Uttar Pradesh elections
The BJP today released its second list of 155 candidates for the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections, with former Congress leader Rita Bahuguna Joshi, Sidharth Nath Singh, and Pankaj Singh, son of Home Minister Rajnath Singh, prominent among them.
The official list was released by BJP general secretary Arun Singh and the party’s Uttar Pradesh unit chief Keshav Prasad Maurya. The party has so far announced the names of 304 candidates, with no Muslim nominee among them.
Pankaj Singh will make his electoral debut in Noida. A general secretary in the party’s state unit, Pankaj has missed out on becoming its nominee in a couple of previous elections. His name did the rounds for a number of constituencies, and the party finally allotted the Noida seat to him.
The BJP will field its national secretary, Sidharth Nath Singh, from Allahabad West, and Garima Singh – first wife of Amethi royal and Congress MP Sanjay Singh – from Amethi.
