A meeting between CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan and state election in-charge and Union minister Dharmendra Pradhan, state in-charge Vinay Sahastrabudhey, national organisational general secretary Ramlal, Union minister Narendra Singh Tomar and state president Rakesh Singh took place on Saturday. It emerged from the meeting that the BJP would finalise its list of candidate after the announcement of Congress’ list.
