New Delhi [India], October 1 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday arrived at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) headquarters in New Delhi for the Central Election Committee meeting.
BJP Chief JP Nadda welcomed the PM at the party headquarters.
The meeting scheduled to finalise candidates for the upcoming assembly elections in Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan is underway at the party headquarters in the national capital.
Key leaders of the party including BJP Chief JP Nadda, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and Union Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal have also arrived at the venue of the meeting.
BJP leader and former Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje also reached the venue. Party leaders Gajendra Singh Shekhawat and Pralhad Joshi also reached the party headquarters.
"Candidates for about 60 to 70 seats in Rajasthan will be discussed while those for 31 seats in Chhattisgarh will be approved today," a source said.
The BJP is busy fine-tuning its strategies for five poll-bound states, including MP and Chhattisgarh. The party has classified all seats in these states into individual categories of A, B, C, and D.
Category A includes seats where the party has consistently performed well while category B includes seats where the BJP has a mixed record of victories and losses. Category C includes seats where the party is deemed to be on a relatively weaker footing.
In contrast, Category D seats have seen continuous BJP defeats in the last three elections. (ANI)
