bjp: Bjp Probables gets restless while waiting for announcement | News Ludhiana
The BJP was waiting for Congress to announce its candidates. Sources said the party was waiting to see if those rejected would join the Saffron Party or go to Captain Amarinder Singh’s Punjab Lok Congress.
But the Congress did not displease the incumbents and most of the candidates were repeated. In Ludhiana district, the BJP had only three seats before, but now they have to select candidates for all 14 seats, so it is proving a bit difficult for them, sources said. The party has candidates in urban seats, but in rural areas they are struggling.
BJP sources have revealed that very soon the first list will be released by the party leadership and before January 21, all tickets will be announced as the nomination process will begin.
BJP District Chairman Pushpinder Singhal said, “The process is ongoing and will be finalized shortly. We have told senior leaders our preference in all constituencies and now the selection committee will make the announcement.
Meanwhile, ticket contenders are gradually campaigning. One of the Central Constituency contenders said, “We just have to announce the candidates now, the other parties are more or less done. There is less than a month left for the elections. Already because of the Covid-19, the campaign has been affected and if names are announced, we can at least go openly to public meetings.
