Among the notable names, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s candidacy from Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh stood out, reaffirming his stronghold in the constituency.

Key Highlights of BJP Second Candidate List 2024

Tejasvi Surya, the dynamic chief of BJP’s youth wing, has declared his candidacy for the Bengaluru South constituency in BJP Candidate List 2024. Surya’s entry has brought youthful energy into electoral politics, giving the next generation of leaders a chance to use the youthful energy for transformative change.

In a strategic move in BJP Candidate List 2024, the Bharatiya Janata Party has also nominated Yaduveer Krishnadatta Wadiyar of the erstwhile Mysore royal family for the Mysore seat, replacing Pratap Simha, appealing to regional sentiments and historical legacies.

However, amidst the wave of new and old faces in the BJP Candidate List 2024, there have been significant reshuffles and changes that have caught the public eye. Prominent faces from Karnataka, such as former Union Minister Sadananda Gowda, have been sidelined, signaling a strategic change in the party’s electoral strategies. Meanwhile, the absence of MP Pratap Simha shows the BJP’s readiness to embrace change and adapt to evolving political dynamics.
