The party’s brainstorming session over the announcement of probable candidates continued till late night on Tuesday. During the party’s meeting, Gadkari collected details related to all candidates including MLAs, defeated candidates, areas of their representation, information regarding district presidents and scrutinized their claim for candidature from close quarters.

Delhi Lok Sabha polls are a matter of prestige for Nitin Gadkari as he has been given the responsibility of taking care of party’s affairs in the national capital. Overall, he has not been able to deliver the party an absolute majority during the Assembly polls as well. In order to make up for this unfinished agenda, the former saffron party chief is trying out possible trick in his sleeve to ensure BJP’s victory in the national capital’s seven Lok Sabha seats.

It’s mainly due to this very reason, he wants to have a proper look into the names of candidates and gauge their winnability before sending the list to party’s parliamentary board.

Several leaders, willing to contest elections also claimed their stakes before Gadkari. Now it remains to be seen, what would be the party’s decision during its parliamentary board meeting, scheduled to be held on 13th March.

During the meet, Gadkari asked the party leaders and workers to discharge their duties in proper co-ordination with each other so that its effect can have an impact during the elections as well.
