Rajasthan Elections: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has released its highly anticipated fifth candidate list for the upcoming Rajasthan Legislative Assembly elections.

The list includes the names of 15 candidates, featuring several new faces and some familiar ones who contested in previous elections.

Notably, the BJP has fielded Gopal Sharma, a senior journalist, as its candidate from the Civil Lines constituency in Jaipur, replacing former minister and state president Arun Chaturvedi.

Additionally, in the Kolayat constituency of Bikaner district, the party has replaced Poonam Kanwar, the daughter-in-law of veteran leader Devi Singh Bhati, with Anshuman Singh Bhati, Devi Singh Bhati's grandson.

According to the list released by the BJP, Amit Chaudhary will contest from Hanumangarh, Anshuman Singh Bhati from Kolayat, Babusingh Rathore from Shergarh, Rajkumar Rinwa from Sardarshahar, Vijay Bansal from Bharatpur, and Neerja Ashok Sharma from Rajakhera.

In a surprising move, the party has fielded student leader Upen Yadav, representing unemployed students, from the Shahpura constituency.

The party has also shown trust in social worker Ravi Nayyar by nominating him from Kishanpole in the Jaipur and Adarsh Nagar constituencies.

The other candidates announced in the list include Abhishek Singh from Ajmer's Masuda constituency, Dr. K.G. Paliwal from Mavli, Premchand Gocher from Pipalda, and Prahlad Gunjal from Kota North.

Notably, even the Baran-Atru constituency has seen a change in the candidate as Sarika Singh's caste certificate had raised doubts, leading to a candidate switch to Radheyshyam Bairwa.
