BJP to announce its first list on April 8

Bengaluru, Apr 3: With the election fever getting heated up, pressure is mounting on BJP to announce the list of candidates.

Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Monday announced that BJP will finalise its first list of candidates, for the May 10 state Assembly polls, on April 8.

In a tete a tete with reporters, Chief Minister Bommai said that the opinions of all the leaders have been gathered and will be discussed in the state-level core committee meeting to be held in the next couple of days. Then the Central Parliamentary Board would meet on April 8 to finalise the list, he stated.

However, former Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa, who is currently in Shikaripura, said that the list will be out in two days. During the two-day core committee meeting, confusion regarding the issue of tickets in Belagavi and Shivamogga will end.

“As per the wishes of people, B.Y. Vijayendra would contest from Shikaripura constituency and register a victory with a huge margin,” Yediyurappa had stated.

Vijayendra too confirmed his candidature from Shikaripura constituency as per the directions of the party. BJP is going to come back to power in the state, he asserted.

Meanwhile, the district core committee meeting was held in Belagavi this morning. The district has 18 Assembly constituencies and is crucial for BJP to win as many seats here.
