Announcement of candidates after election schedule, says Gujarat Cong

Agency News

Ahmedabad, Feb 27 : Gujarat Congress in-charge Rajiv Satav on Wednesday said the party would announce the name of its candidates for all Lok Sabha seats in Gujarat, only after the announcement of the poll schedule.

Talking to newspersons here, Satav said the list of probable candidates has almost been finalised and after screening, it would be sent to the central election committee for final announcement.

To a query, he said that it won't be delayed this time, as it was done during the last Assembly elections because there were not such a large number of aspirants in the LS polls.

'In the Assembly polls, there were so many seats, with an average of 10 strong contenders on each of it, while in LS polls, the number of seats was much less and the number of strong contenders per seat also came down to 2-3 on each of these,' he said.

'As part of the party strategy, the candidates would be announced after the declaration of the poll schedule,' he added.

In the last elections, BJP had won all 26 LS seats in Gujarat. (UNI)
