In the list of fresh nine candidates announced on Saturday, Rawal’s name figured for the Ahmedabad East constituency, a seat being earlier considered for Narendra Modi himself.

The BJP also decided to field state office in-charge of the party, Alok Sanjar, from Bhopal seat, after party veteran Advani decided to contest from Gandhinagar seat.

The Bhopal seat was vacated after senior party leader from the state, Kailash Joshi, quit in favour of Advani.

Former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Uma Bharti, who has been nominated by the party to contest from Jhansi Lok Sabha seat in Uttar Pradesh, is also reported to have staked claim for the seat.
In the fresh list of candidates, sitting MP Prabhatsinh Chouhan would again contest from Panchmahal LS seat and former MLA Deep Sinh Rathore will contest from Sabarkantha.
