The 20 BJP MPs in Uttar Pradesh whose ticket is stuck are losing sleep.

Out of 80 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh, BJP has decided its candidates for 51 seats. The biggest thing in this announcement was that no voices of protest or rebellion were heard anywhere, the only candidate from Barabanki Lok Sabha seat, Upendra Singh Rawat, has definitely expressed his desire not to contest the elections. The reason behind this is not any kind of displeasure with his party, rather a controversial video has allegedly surfaced on social media, which Rawat has completely rejected and filed an FIR. But along with this, he has also announced that he will not contest any election in future before the truth of the video comes out.

If Upedra does not contest the elections from Barabanki, then BJP will have to find a new candidate there also, in this way it has to decide more candidates on 24 seats, the remaining six seats have been left by BJP for its allies.

These are those 20 MPs regarding whom the BJP high command has many ifs and buts in their mind. Some are above 75 years of age and some are surrounded in controversies. Similarly, due to the poor functioning of some MPs, their chances of victory have reduced significantly and some are not fitting into the framework of the existing social equation. There is also an MP who continued criticizing his own government for five years. Apart from this, candidates have not been decided on some VIP seats also which include seats like Rae Bareli, Mainpuri, Sultanpur, Pilibhit. Maneka and Varun Gandhi are MPs from two of the above seats, Sultanpur and Pilibhit respectively.

However, apart from the 20 MPs who have not got tickets, BJP is yet to decide its candidates on 24 seats by including four more seats. The sitting MPs whose tickets have not been declared are making efforts from Lucknow to Delhi with their supporters. Experts say that instead of Kaiserganj MP Braj Bhushan Sharan Singh, who was involved in controversies with the wrestling association, the party wants his wife Ketki Singh or MLA son Prateek Bhushan Singh to contest the elections, but Braj Bhushan tried his best from Lucknow to Delhi to get the ticket. Has given. After the removal of Santosh Gangwar, a continuous MP from Bareilly, from the post of minister in 2019, discussions are now going on to keep him out of electoral politics. His supporters argue that Hema Malini has been given the ticket because she is above 75 years of age, hence Santosh Gangwar’s claim is also made.

On the other hand, Parliamentarian from Deoria and former state president Ramapati Ram Tripathi has also contacted senior BJP officials in Delhi and asked for another chance, while the tickets of Sultanpur MP Maneka Gandhi and Pilibhit MP Varun Gandhi are also in trouble. After Modi’s green signal, the party can give ticket to either of them. However, it is also being said that Varun Gandhi is close to Priyanka Gandhi. To break the ice in relationships, Varun can be fielded from Rae Bareli or Amethi.

After being left out of the first list of BJP candidates for the Lok Sabha elections, veteran MPs of the party have put in all their efforts to get their ticket. Even in the environment of Ram wave and Modi’s guarantee, the party will have to struggle to oust veteran faces from the election field. BJP has declared candidates for 51 out of 80 seats in UP in the first phase. Of the remaining 29 seats, NDA’s ally Rashtriya Lok Dal has declared candidates for Baghpat and Bijnor. Candidates are to be declared on 27 seats in the coming days, out of which Apna Dal (S) will get two seats and SubhaSP will get one seat. It is believed that Apna Dal will be contested from its two existing seats, Robertsganj and Mirzapur. One seat each from Purvanchal will go to Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party and Nishad Party. Ghazipur and Ghosi seats can be given to these parties. Leaders who left SP-BSP and joined BJP can also be fielded on some seats.
