Staff Reporter,

Congress is doing hard work to finalise first list of Assembly candidates. It has already declared some days back that first list of candidates will be released during Navratri. With this, those who are interested to fight election from Assembly seats identified in first list are making all out efforts to appease the party and their political patronage so that their chance of getting ticket becomes brighter.

It was more than a month when State President Kamal Nath told that first list of Assembly candidates would be issued by September end but first list of Assembly candidates could not be released timely. Hence, Congress is making all out efforts to release first list of candidates in Navratri.
Kamal Nath had earlier told that first list, tickets will be cleared of those Assembly seats where party lost with huge margin. The air is abuzz with the news that many defeated candidates may get the chance to fight again from same assembly seat.

Already different rounds of meeting regarding selection of candidates for first list have taken place in New Delhi in presence of State Congress President Kamal Nath, Leader of Opposition Ajay Singh and some other top leaders. It is being fathomed that Congress has almost developed consensus over the names of candidates of first list and now final approval is awaited from party high command. It is after this that first list of Congress candidates would be released.

After first list, Congress will be bringing out another list of remaining seats. It is being said that already Congress has received enough names for every assembly seats. All the names of aspirant candidates have been clubbed for scrutiny. The ticket claim of aspirant candidate is being cross checked from the results of different surveys done by Congress to know that who is most perfect to get the ticket. More than fifty names of candidates are likely to figure out in first candidates’ list.
