The BJP has released its 23rd candidate list for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections on Sunday where it announced seven members whom it is fielding from constituencies across Delhi, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.
Among those in the list include Union Ministers Dr Harsh Vardhan who has been given the ticket to fight from Chandni Chowk, and Hardeep Singh Puri will contest from Amritsar, and actor-turned-politician Manoj Tiwari who will be fighting the polls from North East Delhi.
Dr Harsh Vardhan heads the Ministry of Science & Technology, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change and Ministry of Earth Sciences. Hardeep Singh Puri is the Minister of State (Independent Charge) Housing And Urban Affairs.
Another notable mention in the list is Harinarayan Rajbhar who was caught in a sting by Republic Media Network where he sought favours in-kind from the Republic Bharat reporter instead of asking for cash directly. Rajbhar has been given a ticket to fight from Ghosi in Uttar Pradesh.
Rajbhar, when confronted by Republic Bharat following the sting, hurled abuses at the channel's reporter.
The BJP, as part of its campaigning, held mega-rallies by its top leaders.
On Sunday, PM Narendra Modi, addressed a rally in Patan in Gujarat where he asserted his government's commitment towards national security, Modi said whether the prime minister's chair remains or not, he has decided that either he will be alive or terrorists will remain alive.
The Prime Minister also appealed to people of Gujarat to make the BJP victorious on all 26 Lok Sabha seats in the state, where polling will be held on Tuesday
