During the BJP’s Central Election Committee (CEC) meeting, various prominent figures such as External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, late Sushma Swaraj’s daughter Bansuri Swaraj, and Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar were considered for candidacy in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The meeting, which aimed to finalize the party’s first list of candidates, analyzed factors such as past election outcomes and margins of victory or defeat.

Key decisions from the meeting include Prime Minister Narendra Modi contesting from Varanasi, Amit Shah from Gandhi Nagar, Rajnath Singh from Lucknow, and Smriti Irani from Amethi. Other notable candidates include former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Union Minister Kiren Rijiju, and actor-turned-politician Ravi Kishan.

Discussions regarding candidate selection in states like Punjab, Andhra Pradesh, and Tamil Nadu are ongoing due to alliance negotiations with regional parties. Notable attendees at the meeting included former chief ministers Vasundhara Raje Scindia and Devendra Fadnavis, among others.

The BJP aims to secure a significant victory in the upcoming elections, with Prime Minister Modi setting a target of 370-plus seats for the party and its allies. Uttar Pradesh is particularly crucial for the BJP’s electoral strategy, given its significant contribution to the party’s past electoral successes in 2014 and 2019.

Efforts to enhance booth management, inspired by the Gujarat model, have been emphasized as a key strategy to maximize voter turnout and ensure electoral success, building on the BJP’s recent electoral achievements under the leadership of Amit Shah and Narendra Modi.
