Bjp Elections 2015 Latest News And Live Updates
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Candidates ListThe party that has been enjoying a supreme run of consecutive victories in various elections for sometime now — the BJP — is apparently upbeat about 2015 Delhi Assembly Polls too. May be that was the reason why the party did not announce any candidate’s name till the last minute. A number of non-BJP and other public figures joined the BJP bandwagon The party welcomed former top cop Kiran Bedi, ex-AAP member Shazia Ilmi, former UPA Minister Krishna Tirath and the first man to raise his voice against the AAP, Vinod Kumar Binny, amongst others.
In the 2013 Delhi legislative Assembly elections, the BJP had won 32 seats falling four short of the clear majority mark, but this time the political analysts are of the view that it might grab seats in excess of 40.
The BJP released the candidate list for the Delhi Assembly elections on January 19, 2015, just two days prior to the last date of filing the nominations. Amongst the 62 names announced initially, some of the recognisable faces were those of Kiran Bedi, Jagdish Mukhi, Krishna Tirath, Vinod Binny, Anil Jha, Manoj Shokeen, Vijender Gupta and RP Singh, to name a few. The BJP fielded a young leader Nupur Sharma against Arvind Kejriwal from the New Delhi constituency.
