Delhi election 2020: Here's full list of BJP candidates for all 70 seats

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has released the full list of candidates for the upcoming Delhi Legislative Assembly elections. The party will contest on 67 seats while ally Janata Dal United JD(U) will contest on 2 seats and Lok Janashakti Party (LJP) will contest on Seema Puri constituency.

The 2020 Delhi elections will be held on February 8, 2020 and the results will be announced on February 11, 2020. The last date for filing of the nomination was January 21, 2020.

Key candidates

BJP’s Sunil Yadav will contest from New Delhi seat against incumbent CM Arvind Kejriwal and Congess’ Romesh Sabharwal. Tajinderpal Singh Bagga, who is known for his antics, will be contesting from Hari Nagar. Former AAP minister Kapil Mishra who recently joined BJP will be contesting from Model Town. Out of the 70 seats announced by BJP and its allies, only 6 declared candidates are women, two less than the 2015 elections.

Election 2020

In the previous election, Aam Aadmi Party swept the election with 67 seats while BJP managed to win 3 seats. But it still managed a vote share of 32.3%.

BJP as a political force has never been as dominant as now. Under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah, the party got re-elected in 2019 Lok Sabha elections and almost looked invincible in every state election. But since 2018, the party has lost many state elections. Recently, it failed to form the govt in Maharashtra despite being the single largest party.

BJP, under the leadership of Modi and Shah along with chief ministerial hopeful Manoj Tiwari, will look to regain the national capital in the upcoming elections.
