Thursday, 16 January 2020 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

The BJP’s central election committee (CEC) is likely to meet on Thursday to finalise the party candidates for high decibel Delhi Assembly polls. The committee includes Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP president Amit Shah besides other senior leaders of the party.

According to sources, the party may release the name of its candidates either on the intervening night of 16-17 or 20 January.

"Party May release the names soon. Names of  70 candidates can be released in three lists. Names have been shortlisted and CEC will be deciding who will be contesting," said a party insider at BJP state office, Pandit Pant Marg. He further added that days are less for filing the nominations and the central command is most likely to release first list on16 January night. Meanwhile as Delhi assembly elections are approaching, the BJP office bearers, party workers and Members of Parliament (MPs) have increased their visit frequently at the party headquarters.

CAA, abrogation of article 370, central government policies to combat air pollution and supply of clean water to Delhiites are few crucial issues which BJP leaders are pitching to lure voters in Delhi.

The ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had on Tuesday named all its candidates for the 70-member Delhi assembly polls, scheduled for February 8. The BJP had won only three assembly seats in the previous assembly elections while AAP won in 67
