Pathalgaon, Chhattisgarh, Mar 31 (UNI) A survey is being carried out by the BJP for assessing popularity of candidates for selecting them in view of the upcoming Chhattisgarh Vidhan Sabha elections and Lok Sabha elections.
State BJP President and MP Vishnudev Sai told UNI here that sitting legislators and MPs would be denied tickets if their performance did not conform to parameters set in the survey.
''The party is searching such faces that could register victory.
The first phase of the survey -- being carried out in three phases in view of delimitation -- has been completed,'' he said, adding that a list of candidates would be handed over to central party election committee after the survey was completed.
Mr Sai said the party would gain at some places and loose at others in view of fresh demarcation of boundaries after delimitation. However, he noted, party candidates would emerge stronger in most seats.
Claiming that the BJP would form government in Chhattisgarh again under Dr Raman Singh, he said the party was spreading the information about work done by the government to everybody in view of the upcoming polls.
