MCD polls: BJP releases final list of candidates
According To India Vote Kar
Braving the pressure from several quarters, the BJP managed to release its second and final list of 100 candidates for the MCD polls on Monday giving priority to women, just a few hours before the closing of nominations.
The list shows commitment of the party towards women empowerment, said a senior party leader.
The prominent faces who have been given ticket include Poonam Parasar Jha, Delhi BJP Mahila Morcha president and wife of former MLA Anil Jha. She will contest on Mubarakpur Dabas ward in North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC).
The BJP has fielded six Muslim candidates in the MCD polls. The final list named Rubina as party candidate from Quraish Nagar in NDMC and Jamal Haidar from Abul Fazal Enclave in South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC).
The final list included names of 34 candidates in NDMC, 40 in SDMC, and 26 in East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC).
The party had yesterday announced its first list of 160 candidates. There are a total of 272 wards in the three municipal corporations in the city, including 104 each in South and North Delhi municipal corporations and 64 in the East Delhi municipal corporation.
