While the Congress has issued 5 list of candidates so far, the BJP is yet to reveal its aspirants from any of the parliamentary constituencies. The party is expected to release its first list tomorrow, following the BJP Central Election Committee meeting scheduled at 5:30pm.
With days before the filing of nominations for the first phase, the ruling NDA received a shot in the arm, after an opinion poll conducted by Times Now-VMR predicted a return for the ruling regime. The coalition is predicted to win 283 seats, comfortably above the halfway majority mark.
