BJP releases 3rd list of candidates for LS polls sans Pathanamthitta
New Delhi: The BJP has released its third list of candidates for the Lok Sabha polls containing 36 names. But this time also, the party has not named the candidate for Pathanamthitta parliament constituency. The second list included the lone seat for Daman and Diu
Though sources reported that the candidate for Pathanamthitta will be finalised on Friday, the party has not named the candidate in the third list also.
The tussle over Pathanamthitta seat inside the party and the delay in declaration of BDJS candidates in constituencies including Thrissur hindered declaration of Pathanamthitta candidate.
The third list also included 23 nominees for Andhra Pradesh where polling will be held in the first phase on April 11.
The list announced late on Friday night also contained names of six candidates for Maharashtra and five for Odisha. Also, one candidate each for Assam and Meghalaya has been announced in the list.
BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra will contest the general election from Puri parliamentary constituency in Odisha.
