The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is going to tell today who will represent them in the Lok Sabha elections. They used a detailed process to choose the candidates. They talked to people, evaluated their members, and discussed important topics to pick the right people.

Yesterday night, senior BJP leaders, like Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, and party president JP Nadda, had a long meeting to talk about who should run for the 543 Lok Sabha seats. The elections will probably happen in April-May.

How They Choose Candidates

The BJP used technology to hear from the grassroots level. They used the Namo App to ask people about their current MPs. They also asked who the top three leaders are in each area. This way, they want to make sure that the candidates understand what people want.

For the past two years, the BJP has been checking how well its MPs are doing. They talked to ministers and looked at reports about each area.

Ministers visited Lok Sabha seats, made reports, and told the party about what was happening on the ground.

All this information helped the BJP decide who should run for elections. They met in each state and talked to top leaders like Mr Nadda, Home Minister Shah, and general secretary BL Santosh.

The BJP didn’t just stick to its members. They also tried to get people from other parties. They said MPs who didn’t do well might lose their chance to run again. About 60-70 MPs might get tickets later.

The party thinks many of its MPs from the Other Backward Classes (OBC) will run again. In 2019, 85 OBC MPs from the BJP won.

New and Old Faces

In a meeting that started late yesterday and went on for four hours, the BJP talked about getting seats they lost in 2019.

Some ministers like Bhupender Yadav, Dharmendra Pradhan, and Mansukh Mandaviya might run for the elections. They didn’t get another term in the Rajya Sabha during recent polls. That’s how the BJP is getting ready for the Lok Sabha elections.
