Today Bharatiya Janata Party has announced candidates for the Lok Sabha elections 2019. This first list contains 184 names. For the first time from Gandhinagar, the name of party leader LK Advani has been replaced. In his place, BJP President Amit Shah will go to the electoral fray.
Congress has given the first reaction to the release of the BJP’s first list. Party spokesman Randeep Singh Surjewala tweeted a tweet. He wrote, Earlier, For the first time, Shri LK Advani was forced into the ‘path-viewer’ board, now he took away his parliamentary seat. When Modiji does not respect the elderly, why should he respect the faith of the people?
पहले श्री लाल कृष्ण अडवाणी को ज़बरन ‘मार्ग दर्शक’ मंडल में भेज दिया,
अब उनकी संसदीय सीट भी छीन ली।
जब मोदीजी बुज़ुर्गों का आदर नहीं करते,
वह जनता के विश्वास का आदर कहाँ करेंगे?
