BHOPAL: The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) named 50 candidates for the November 28 Assembly polls in Madhya Pradesh on Friday. The Mayawati-led party, which has decided to contest all 230 seats in the state on its own, is likely to declare the remaining candidates by the end of this month.

According to state BSP president Pradip Ahirwar, the party’s national president and former UP chief minister Mayawati will address eight publicrallies in the state between November 18 and 26.“The party president will address three rallies each in the Vindhya region and the Gwalior-Chambal region, and one rally each in Bhopal and Jabalpur,” Ahirwar told The New Indian Express.

The list of candidates released in Bhopal on Friday includes 21 of the 22 candidates whose list was declared on September 20, and 29 fresh candidates. The candidature of Lakhan Singh Yadav from Sevada seat in Datia district, whose name figured in the first list of 22 candidates declared on September 20, has been put on hold, Ahirwar added.

The BSP, which won four seats in the 2013 polls, with 6.29 per cent votes, has reposed its faith in its four sitting legislators, including Advocate Satyaprakash from Ambah seat in Morena district, Usha Choudhary from Raigaon (SC) seat in Satna district, Sheila Tyagi from Mangawan (SC) seat in Rewa district, and Balveer Singh Dandotiya from Morena seat in Morena district. Dandotiya had won the 2013 polls from Dimani seat in Morena district, but will this time contest from Morena seat, which is held by MP health minister Rustam Singh.The state party chief claimed that BSP will win 30-plus seats in the coming election.
