BJP's third list for MP finds space for Jr. Vijayvargiya, Babulal Gaur's 'Bahu'

BJP's third list for MP finds space for Jr.  Vijayvargiya, Babulal Gaur's 'Bahu'

New Delhi, Nov 8 (UNI) In the third list of candidates released by BJP on Thursday for poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, there has been a modest push to 'dynastic' elements in the saffron party as the saffron outfit has accommodated the scions of senior leaders Kailash Vijaywargia and Babulal Gaur.

The list released by Union Health Minister and secretary to the party's central election committee J P Nadda here has named Akash Vijaywargia for Indore III assembly segment, while daughter-in-law of former Chief Minister Babulal Gaur Ms Krishna Gaur from Govindpura in Bhopal.

In the list released on Thursday there were 32 names and so far the ruling BJP in Madhya Pradesh has released the names of 224 candidates.

Another prominent leader who has made it to the BJP list includes Rakesh Chowdhury, a former Congress leader, for the Bhind seat.

However, there was no space in the list for any family member or son of Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan.

According to BJP sources in Indore, Ms Mahajan on her part had clarified earlier that none from her family would be contesting this year's polls. There was speculation in a section of party that Lok Sabha Speaker's son Mandar would be accommodated in one of the seats in Indore.

The ticket for Ghattiya SC seat has been given to Ajit Premchandra Borasi, the son of a former Congress MP Premchandra Guddu.

For Barwani assembly segment, BJP has announced new name Antar Singh Patel. The announcement of new name has been necessitated as the candidate fielded earlier Devi Singh Patel expired recently after a massive heart attack.
