BJP likely to give 10 seats to allies in RajasthanBJP is considering its options to give 10 assembly seats to its allies in Rajasthan.

The Party declared a total of 43 names for the upcoming polls on Friday in two phases. But BJP withheld announcement of candidates for ten seats.

According to party sources, BJP is likely to leave 10 seats for allies. Out of 10 Om Prakash Chautala's INLD will get four.

"There will be no CEC meeting for the remaining seats and the BJP has authorised party president Rajnath Singh to take a decision within two days," BJP general secretary in-charge of Rajasthan Gopinath Munde told.

The ruling party had denied tickets to 12 sitting MLAs.

"The list announced consists of eight women pushing the total number of women candidates from BJP to 31. Three candidates in the third list are from the Scheduled Caste and two from Scheduled Tribe," Munde said.

According to least three sitting MPs will now contest for assembly polls. They are Kiran Maheshwari, MP from Udaipur, who will be contesting from the Rajsamand assembly seat; Srichand Kriplani, MP from Chittorgarh, who will contest from Badisadhri; and Raghuvir Singh Kaushal, MP from Kota, who will contest from Antaa.
