Prime Minister Modi to Lead Union Council of Ministers Meeting Ahead of Lok Sabha Polls

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is slated to preside over a meeting of the Union Council of Ministers on Sunday in New Delhi, following the BJP's announcement of its initial list of candidates for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

This gathering is anticipated to mark the Council's final session prior to the general elections, projected to take place in April-May this year. The meeting is scheduled to convene at the Sushma Swaraj Bhavan in Chanakyapuri, New Delhi. Among the key topics likely to be discussed are the performance of the central government, with the BJP aiming to underscore its accomplishments and developmental initiatives during the election campaigns.

On Saturday, the BJP unveiled its inaugural list featuring 195 candidates for the Lok Sabha polls. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to contest from Varanasi for a third consecutive term, while Union Home Minister Amit Shah will run from his current constituency, Gandhinagar, and Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh will seek re-election from Lucknow.

The initial list encompasses 34 Union Ministers and two former Chief Ministers, while omitting 33 incumbent MPs across several states, including notable figures. Notably absent from the list are Union Minister from Delhi, Meenakshi Lekhi, and former Union Minister Harsh Vardhan.

Another notable exclusion is Sadhvi Pragya Thakur from Bhopal.

Of the 195 constituencies in the first roster, the party secured victory in 155 seats during the 2019 polls.

Prime Minister Modi has set an ambitious target for the BJP to secure a minimum of 370 seats independently in this Lok Sabha election, with aspirations for over 400 seats for the NDA coalition.
