Modi, Shah, Nadda brainstorm to finalise candidates for Bengal, Assam

Brainstorming to finalize BJP candidates began on Thursday with the party's Central Election Committee (CEC) meeting on the upcoming assembly polls in West Bengal and Assam. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and party president JP Nadda huddled along with other members of the party's committee.

The members held deliberations at the BJP headquarters on Thursday. Meanwhile, the party sources told PTI that the CEC may clear the names of the candidates for most of the seats in the two states where elections will be held in the first two phases on March 27 and April 1. While the third and last phase of polling in Assam will be held on April 6, West Bengal is scheduled to undergo elections in eight phases ending on April 29.

The direct fight between Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and her former confidant, now BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari in Nandigram seat will be one of the high-profile contests in the high-stakes Bengal polls.

According to sources, the BJP CEC may meet again on Friday.
