The BJP released its first list of candidates for the Goa and Punjab assembly elections on Thursday. Union Minister JP Nadda released the first list of 17 BJP candidates for the Punjab polls. He also announced the names of 29 Goa candidates. The BJP, in alliance with the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), is expected to fight 23 seats, while the Prakash Singh Badal-led party will be contesting the remaining 94 of the 117 seats. It is being speculated that the party is also expected to release its manifesto. Punjab goes to the polls on February 4, while counting will take place on March 11.
Anchor Neha Pant of ABP News said Yogi Aditya Nath will be the CM in Uttar Pradesh if the BJP wins. He is currently a Member of Parliament from Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh. Tension within the BJP became apparent when Aditya Nath left the national executive meeting of the party in Delhi midway and went back to Lucknow. As a result, he skipped the concluding day of the meet, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi was supposed to address the gathering. It may be mentioned that a consensus was achieved on Aditya Nath as the chief ministerial candidate at the two-day meeting convened by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh in Kanpur a few weeks ago.
Anup Mishra of Aaj Tak reported from New Delhi railway station bout the suffering of the common man. Two dozen trains were cancelled due to fog and the low temperature. Passengers waiting for their trains were drinking tea and warming themselves in front of fires.
