In a bid to finalise candidates for the upcoming assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, the BJP Central Election Committee (CEC) on Thursday held a meeting at the party headquarter in New Delhi.

The CEC meet, which started at about 4 pm this afternoon, witnessed prominent figures such as Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chauhan, Party president Amit Shah, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Home Minister Rajnath Singh among others.

The Saffron party will release the list of candidates on 230 seats in instalments and the first list for Madhya Pradesh Assembly Elections was expected to be announced by late Thursday.

Keeping in mind the announcement of candidate lists in Madhya Pradesh, large number of police personnel have been deployed outside the BJP and the Congress offices in Bhopal to maintain law and order.
