Highlights

NEW DELHI: BJP on Sunday announced its first list of 52 candidates for the assembly polls in Jharkhand where it will be pitted against the alliance of Congress, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha and Rashtriya Janata Dal.
While announcing the candidates here, party working president J P Nadda said the list focused on the first phase of polls, but there are some candidates in it who would be contesting the elections in the other four phases.
Jharkhand will vote in five phases, with the first on November 30 and the last on December 20. Results will be declared on December 23. The last date of filing nominations for the first phase is November 13.
Nadda claimed that the atmosphere in Jharkhand was in favour of BJP and every section of society was supporting CM Raghubar Das.
“Jharkhand was previously known for high corruption and low stability. Today, it is known for stability and development under the leadership of Raghubar Das. Corruption has been curbed,” he told a press conference.
Party general secretary Arun Singh, who announced the list, said Das will contest from Jamshedpur (East), while BJP's state unit president Lakshman Gilua has been fielded from Chakradharpur.
