Haryana polls: BJP to release 2nd list of candidates on Sep 20

Chandigarh, Sep 16: The BJP will release its second list of party candidates for next month's assembly polls in Haryana on September 20, a senior party leader said on Tuesday.

"The second list will be released on September 20," Haryana BJP leader and MLA Anil Vij told reporters here. The BJP had released its first list of 43 candidates on September nine. Asked whether some leaders were unhappy with ticket distribution, Vij said some problems had arisen but "there is no major dissent among leaders".

"Everyone has a right to give his opinion, but when the High Command takes a decision (on allocation of tickets), that has to be respected," he said.

With BJP inducting a number of leaders, mainly from the Congress and the INLD, in the run-up to elections, voices of dissent have been heard at some places.

When asked whether any party leader would be projected as Chief Ministerial candidate, Vij said "there has been no talk on this."

The BJP leader indicated the party would fight the upcoming polls under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying he would be seen in the thick of electioneering in Haryana.
