The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today released the first list of 107 candidates for the upcoming Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections.

Addressing a press conference, Union minister Dharmendra Pradhan announced that UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath and deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya will contest from Gorakhpur city and Sirathu constituency, respectively.

The BJP declared former Uttarakhand governor Baby Rani Maurya as its candidate from Agra (rural). Maurya, a Jatav Dalit, has contested one assembly poll in the past without any success.

The candidates’ names were announced following the meeting of BJP’s central election committee that concluded on January 13. The meeting was chaired by BJP president Jagat Prakash Nadda. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union home minister Amit Shah, defence minister Rajnath Singh and other members of the committee were present during the meeting.

The list comprises 57 candidates contesting in the first phase and 48 candidates fighting in the second phase of the seven-phase assembly elections. Of the 107 candidates announced, 44 are from Other Backward Caste and 19 from the Schedule Caste, according to a BJP functionary.
