After marathon round of meetings the Bharatiya Janata Party have released its first list of 57 candidates for the February 8 polls to the 70-member Delhi Assembly, fielding sitting MLA Vijender Gupta and former mayors Ravinder Gupta and Yogender Chandolia.
The list, which was released by Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari, also included former Aam Aadmi Party MLA Kapil Mishra and has 11 Scheduled Caste and four woman candidates.
The party, however, did not name its candidate against AAP leader and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday with Tiwari saying the candidate from New Delhi seat will be announced soon.
Gupta will again fight from his Rohini seat, while Mishra will contest from Model Town.
Tiwari was joined by senior BJP leader Prakash Javadekar at the press conference where he announced the party candidates whose names were finalised at its central election committee meeting on Thursday night.
The incumbent government AAP had earlier released its list for 70 seats.
