Rajasthan Elections: For the upcoming Rajasthan Assembly elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has released its final and sixth candidate list, which includes three candidates.
In this list, the BJP has nominated Deepak Kadvasra from Barmer, Giriraj Singh Malinga from Bari, and Arun Amraram Chaudhary from Pachpadra.
Notably, what sets this list apart is the inclusion of Giriraj Singh Malinga, a former Congress MLA who has joined the BJP, and he will contest from the Bari constituency.
With the release of this sixth list, the BJP has now announced candidates for all 200 seats in the Rajasthan Assembly elections.
It's important to mention that Rajasthan has a total of 200 legislative seats. Before this, the party had issued its fifth list of 15 candidates.
In that list, the BJP replaced its candidate in Kolayat. Initially, the party had nominated Poonam Kanwar, the daughter-in-law of veteran leader Devi Singh Bhati, but later, they fielded Anshuman Singh Bhati in her place.
In the fifth candidate list for the upcoming Rajasthan Assembly elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) dropped Arun Chaturvedi, a former minister and a close associate of Vasundhara Raje, from the Civil Lines constituency.
Chaturvedi is known for his proximity to Vasundhara Raje, a prominent leader in the BJP. The BJP, in a surprising move, fielded journalist Gopal Sharma as their candidate from the Civil Lines constituency, introducing a new face to contest against Pratap Singh Khachariyawas, a seasoned minister in the Rajasthan government.
In a significant turn of events, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) decided to replace Ashok Parnami in its fifth candidate list for the upcoming Rajasthan Assembly elections.
Parnami is known for his loyalty to former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje. Instead, the BJP chose Upen Yadav, the President of the Unemployed Youth Union, as their candidate to contest from the Shahpura constituency.
It's worth noting that Upen Yadav, who has been a prominent advocate for the issues of unemployed youth, made a significant announcement in October.
He declared his intention to contest in the upcoming legislative assembly elections. Upen Yadav is known as a non-political figure whose voice has resonated with thousands of unemployed individuals in the state.
He emphasized that he had been fighting for the future of young job seekers for over 11 years and 8 months, spanning across both government regimes.
Meanwhile, in the Kota North constituency, Prahlad Gunjal, a staunch supporter of Vasundhara Raje, was nominated by the BJP.
It's important to note that the Rajasthan Legislative Assembly elections are scheduled to be held in a single phase on November 25, with the results set to be announced on December 3.
