BJP releases fifth list for Rajasthan assembly polls

The BJP on on Monday released fifth list of eight candidates for the Rajasthan assembly elections slated for December 7.

The list includes Mukesh Goyel from Kotputli and O P Saini from Karauli.

The saffron party has released fourth list with 24 names on Sunday and eight names on Saturday in third list.

The list, released by senior party leader and Union Minister J P Nadda here, had 31 names in second list and 131 in the first list.

The BJP had recorded a convincing victory winning 163 of the 200 assembly seats in the state in 2013. But Rajasthan has a tradition of changing government every five years and the run up to the polls in the western state has seen immense dissidence in the saffron party camp.

The counting of votes will take place along with those in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Mizoram and Telangana on December 11.
